In a bid to enable guests to discover hidden spots of historical, architectural and cultural significance, Hilton Athens has introduced the 'City Walk Weekend for Two' package, which was created based on an exclusive cooperation with 'Big Olive,' a team of young people who enjoy organising unique, fun and educational walks around Athens.
With this package, Hilton Athens aims to re-introduce Athens to its visitors, through walks around fascinating neighbourhoods as well as narrations of their stories.
The tours include 'The Orientalist's Walk' where visitors can discover the little known history of Athens under Ottoman rule by visiting stately Ottoman mansions, atmospheric Turkish bath houses, mosques and synagogues; 'The Secrets of the Lost River,' an ancient river, which has now been turned into a canal to flow beneath roadways, 'The Greek Revival Walk,' which includes some of Athens' finest Neo-Classical buildings; 'The Literary Walk,' focusing on locations strongly associated with legendary figures; 'The Path to Modernity,' which explores architectural styles ranging from 19th century neoclassical edifices to minimalist contemporary works, and more.
The collaboration of Hilton Athens with the team of Big Olive is part of the hotel's wider interest in promoting Athens as a magnificent city break destination by highlighting its artistic and cultural wealth.
The package includes two nights in a double-room, breakfast in Byzantino restaurant, two tickets to a city-walk of your choice, access to Hiltonia Spa (indoor pool, gym and sauna) and foot massage for two.
