First stop: Koukaki

Ilissos Hotel is located in the neighborhood of Koukaki, one of the most beautiful and historic neighborhoods of Athens which stands under the sacred rock of the Parthenon. It is the closest neighborhood to the Acropolis, which continues to retain the glory of the past thanks to the well-preserved and renovated houses, the architecturally separate neoclassical buildings and the characteristic apartment buildings that tell a story from the interwar period of Athens.

If you choose Ilissos, you will be within walking distance of the Acropolis Museum, which you must visit during your stay in the city. With findings, coming exclusively from the Athenian Acropolis and its slopes, it will captivate you with its incomparable beauty. Equally close is the Conservatory of Herodes Atticus, the ancient conservatory of the Roman period, which will take you mentally to the epic glorious past of the place.

For modern art lovers, Ilissos is also the ideal base, as it is located very close to the National Museum of Contemporary Art and the Onassis Foundation. The first becomes the only state museum in the city with the object of contemporary Greek and world art creation, while at the Onassis Foundation you can enjoy theater, dance and music performances, which will fully enhance your travel experience.

Also, in the country where summer literally never ends, it is worth taking a trip to the Athenian Riviera, the coastline from Paleo Faliro to Sounio. It is one of the most beautiful in the world, which is why we are “strategically” located close to it.

Finally, in addition to all the above, the area of ​​Koukaki itself is dynamically claiming your attention and not unjustly, since in recent years it has become a popular destination for both Greeks and tourists. Providing a variety of options in cafes, taverns, and shops is the ideal proposal for an unforgettable Athenian experience.

Despite the presence of many abandoned buildings, the elegance of this neighborhood remains unchanged and its glamor is special!
