Attractions near the Herodion Hotel
The city of gods
This famous ancient citadel sits high on a rocky hilltop dominating the city of Athens. Having weathered the storms of centuries of history, many of the temples and ancient buildings located here are still standing, albeit only as remnants of their original glory. This includes the most famous of all: The Parthenon.
Many buildings of the Acropolis date back to the 5th Century BC. Marvel at the incredible ancient architecture and let yourself be transported back to a time when Athens was a city teeming with colossal buildings and significant statues, gleaming in bronze, gold, marble and precious stones. No visit to Athens is complete without wandering round the Acropolis, so brave the crowds and prepared to be amazed by the scale and majesty of this timeless masterpiece.
The Benaki Museum is located in a former family mansion in downtown Athens. Inside, you can discover Greek culture and history through extensive works of art, from pre-historic to modern times. The displays guide you through Roman domination of Greece, to medieval times, the fall of Constantinople and the struggle for Greek independence.
Set up in 1930, the Museum’s vast collection, including a fascinating exhibit of Islamic and Chinese art, was influenced by the founders, the Benakis family, who lived much of their lives in Egypt. The Benaki Museum presents a different side of Greek culture from the many ancient sights the city has to offer.
