The Marblous Athens

Favorably located in the heart of the city, close to Athens’ most vibrant neighbourhoods, The Marblous (deriving from Marble + Marvelous) offer elegant, hip and contemporary accommodation and providing genuine hospitality while engaging thoughtful service and giving attention to detail with the aim of creating marvelous experiences.

Hellenic Parliament - Sentry Change

The Evzone's (an elite light infantry unit) provide a 24-hour honour guard to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, which is off Syntagma Square below the Hellenic Parliament, with an hourly sentry change, which is carried out in slow motion, that some say is to allow the troops circulation to resume after standing absolutely motionless.

Metropolitan Cathedral

The ‘official’ church of Athens is the headquarters of the Archbishop of Greece. Groundbreaking was held on Christmas day 1842, but construction was halted in 1843 due to lack of funds. The cathedral was finally completed in 1862, it was constructed with materials from over 70 abandoned or ruined churches. The interior includes notable frescoes and icons and a 24-metre-high dome.

Church of Panagia Kapnikarea

This is one of the oldest churches in Athens, and it sits right in the middle of Ermou Street, the city’s busiest commercial street. This church has an unusual architecture—there’s a smaller church attached—that hosts Arabic calligraphic inscriptions.

Hadrian’s Library

In its heyday, this was the largest library in Athens. It also served as the official state archive and a philosophy school. The ruins reflect Hadrian’s ambition to establish Athens as the cultural centre of his empire. With its facade of 100 columns, painted ceilings and high surrounding walls, it was designed to make a big impression.

The Roman Agora

This ancient marketplace is situated near Monastiraki, the city’s modern marketplace. It was the city’s civic centre under Roman rule. The far end was marked by the Tower of the Winds. Entry was through a huge Doric arch built by Augustus Caesar. During the Byzantine Empire, a church was built among the homes and workshops, which later served as the foundations for the Fetiye Cami, a mosque built by the Ottomans.


The Acropolis has been inhabited since Neolithic times. The Acropolis’ peculiar geology makes it a natural fortress as the craggy plateau sits atop a sheer drop. At about 150 metres above sea level, it is half the height of Lycabettus but a much harder climb. The ‘Sacred Rock’ of the Athenians is known worldwide for its architectural masterpieces, including the Parthenon, a monument of startling simplicity and beauty.

Philopappou Hill

The hill is crowned by a marble monument to a Roman consul from the Kingdom of Commagene, Gaius Julius Antiochus Epiphanes Philopappos. A sixth-century-BC inscription in the rocks near Agia Marina church suggests that there may have been a shrine dedicated to Zeus at the site. One of the best vantage points in the city, with a prime perspective on the Acropolis as well as across the cityscape and out to sea.

Church of Saint Marina in Thissio

The church of St. Marina is located in Thissio district in Athens, on a hill near the National Observatory. Originally, the Church was carved in the rock, and inside it was covered with numerous wall paintings. Now it is an impressive four-nave basilica with a massive dome that is made in an elegant Byzantine style.


Kerameikos, is an area of Athens, Greece, located to the northwest of the Acropolis, which includes an extensive area both within and outside the ancient city walls, on both sides of the Dipylon Gate and by the banks of the Eridanos River. It was the potters' quarter of the city, from which the English word "ceramic" is derived, and was also the site of an important cemetery and numerous funerary sculptures erected along the Sacred Way, a road from Athens to Eleusis.

The Ancient Agora

The Agora was established under Solon in the sixth century BC and grew over a period of several centuries. The Agora was the bustling heart of ancient Athens. It housed shops, temples, the Tholos, where the senate held banquets and offered sacrifices, the Boulefterion, where the 500-member city council sat, and the Hephaisteion, a Doric temple built in the fifth century BC and dedicated to the gods Hephaistos and Athena.

Temple of Poseidon at Sounion

This Doric temple was erected during the Golden Age of Pericles. It was devoted to Poseidon, the Olympian God of the Sea, and is located at the edge of Cape Sounion at the southern coast of Attica, with a spectacular view of the Aegean Sea. Along with the Parthenon and the temple of Aphaia, on nearby Aegina island, Poseidon’s mighty monument completes the Sacred Triangle of antiquity.

Christmas Syntagma Square

Most cities, in December, are dressed in light, colors and with the Christmas spirit, Athens is no exception. The center where all people converge is Syntagma Square.
