Dear 2020. You’ve given us quite the ride. Who could blame us for wanting to escape for a weekend and put our worries on hold?
If any city can take your mind off things, it’s Athens. The Greek capital is exciting and alive; surprising and diverse; cultured and classical. Mastercard has created 8 long weekends of immersive city breaks during October and November, with an exclusive 30% discount for cardholders (and special savings for everyone else!).
This is your chance to stay in one of Athens’ best hotels and craft your perfect 3 day city-break by choosing from a raft of fantastic experiences, all designed to reveal a different side of our world-famous metropolis.
Bunk down in stylish stays, starting from just €60 a night. There’s everything from hip design hotels, groovy pop art crashpads and elegant 19th century mansions in leafy suburbs, to reviving zen spa hotels, 5-star favourites with Acropolis views and classy Athens Riviera jewels.
After you’ve picked your accommodation, you can add on as few, or as many, Athenian experiences as you like to amp up your mini-vacay. All at reduced prices.
Perhaps a Greek wine pairing or cocktail tasting odyssey? An ancient Greek massage with healing herbs at a luxury spa? A private culture walk where you can get hands-on with precious museum artefacts? Or a refined meal on a romantic roof terrace with the Parthenon for company? (make it a kid-free encounter by booking one of one of the expert local nannies on offer).
Whether you’re a Greek resident craving a change of scene, or you live abroad and dream of brightening up your autumn by getting away from it all for a few days, Stay in Athens is a marvelous opportunity to soak up our non-stop city at affordable prices. (If you already live in Athens, you can dive into the great value dining offers and activities instead.)
As you’ll discover, Athens in autumn offers the best of both worlds. It’s still warm enough to swim along the Athens Riviera and eat and drink outdoors – but you can also relish all the city’s downtown delights minus the heat and crowds.
