Athens

Athens, a feast for the senses, is alive and kicking. More than just the birthplace of democracy, the city maintains a balance between the ancient and the modern in its aesthetic, culture, and spirit. The grandeur of this bustling metropolis is all around: ancient sites in the heart of the city, an abundance of wonderful museums, and stunning neoclassical architecture.
Its charm, however, can be found in the sensory experiences the city offers:

• big and bright, the open-air “laiki agora” (literally, “the people’s markets”) are held in every Athenian neighbourhood every week, with merchants and shoppers – equally as big and bright – buzzing with activity while negotiating on fruit,
vegetables, fish, olives, legumes and oil, all awash in a sea of colour and texture
• the truly spectacular sight of the Acropolis at night, lights illuminating its magnificence as it stands proudly,
an eternal warrior guarding the city and its people
• “kefi”, the famous Greek lust for life: expression, passion, enjoyment, music, gathering, laughter, and inclusion - the
best of the Greek spirit always on display at tavernas, bars, theatre and dances, but also on the simple
summer evening strolls of Athenians delighting in their city
• a smorgasbord for the tastebuds! A staggering range of traditional and modern. Simple, Mediterranean
flavours, fresh produce, grilled meats, seafood, vegetables: the city caters for every taste and budget
• the sense of passing through the ages, truly a hallmark of the Athenian experience. Wandering
charming pathways of the ancient city centre, the wonder of being surrounded by history and ruins,
existing together in contrast with the modern

Whether it’s your first visit or you are a seasoned traveller to our city,
there is far more to Athens than meets the eye!

MIRA ME ATHENS

Among the great assets of Mira Me Athens are its two restaurants, thanks to the philosophy of their cuisine and their charismatic position in direct “interaction” with the neighborhood.
The rooftop is one of the most beautiful terraces in this city. And it is not only the unobstructed, within-reach view of the Acropolis, the Agora and other monuments, but also the images of Athens as it really is. The menu focuses on Mediterranean cuisine with some Asian influences, wines from selected Greek producers complement the list, while creative cocktails are served at the bar.
