Athens, the vibrant capital and the heart of ancient civilization, boasts numerous senior-friendly attractions.
The Acropolis, a UNESCO World Heritage site, offers an elevator and paved pathways for easier access, allowing seniors to marvel at the Parthenon and other ancient monuments without strenuous climbs. The Acropolis Museum provides a comfortable and informative experience showcasing artifacts and sculptures from the site. Exploring the Plaka district’s charming streets, lined with shops and tavernas, offers a relaxed ambiance and opportunities for leisurely walks.
If there’s a common word that describes the hotels of the Greek islands, it’s 'epic'. The stereotype of a Greek island guest room is practically legendary: whitewashed walls, cave-like forms, and impossible views from cliffs overhanging the sea. It’s one of the better formulas you’ll find anywhere and, like the sirens of Greek mythology, it’s an irresistible scene that has attracted travelers for decades.
