Destination Treasures

Located in the heart of the city, the Hotel Grande Bretagne offers the utmost accommodation experience as well as an unrivalled perspective of Athens’ historic heritage, authentic experiences and indigenous cuisine.

The fabled Acropolis

Standing right opposite the historic Hotel Grande Bretagne, the renowned Acropolis and Parthenon temple was dedicated by the ancient Athenians to goddess Athena Parthenos, the patron of Athens, and was built between 447-438 BC as part of the greater Periclean building project.

It is the most magnificent creation of Athenian democracy at the height of its power, and the finest monument on the Acropolis in terms of conception and execution.

The changing of the Guards

The Evzones, symbol of the Hellenic Republic since 1867, are chosen via a rigorous selection process and require a well-groomed appearance, physical strength and exemplary character references. It is a truly memorable experience to attend the Changing of the Guardand and admire their characteristic, perfectly synchronized gait.

This is daily experience that takes place outside the Parliament building on Syntagma Square every hour. The high-stepping soldiers in pleated skirts and woollen stockings, even during the summer, will delight spectators of all ages.
