Those who know Athens know all too well that the city is always up to something. Athens has moved beyond its reputation as a solely summer destination or an Aegean island stopover and is rightfully being celebrated for its all-year-round cultural, gastronomical and entertainment offerings. November is no exception.
To invite connoisseurs and first-timers alike to engage with Athens' round-the-clock vigour, Mastercard's popular Stay In Athens initiative returns for four long weekends in November with an exclusive 30% discount for Mastercard holders on accommodation and flight bookings with Aegean Airlines*, laying the full monty at the visitor’s feet.
Book a room at one of the city's best hotels, choosing from a great variety of boutique lodgings, reviving zen spa hotels, stylish crashpads and luxurious landmarks, from just €50 a night.
That's not all. Experience Athens as never before by booking your spot for any of the activities included in the programme. Rethink archaeology with a visit to the Acropolis alongside pop archaeostoryteller Dr. Thodoris Papakostas; go deeper underground following a 4 km path to the unseen treasures of the city; spend a night underneath the stars at the National Observatory delving into tales of Greek mythology; explore the National Garden from a different point of view alongside NGO Me Alla Matia; trace the last kilometres of the Athens Authentic Marathon on a bike on your way to the Panathenaic Stadium; savour Greece's frozen-in-time Smyrnaean cuisine over a nostalgic dinner at the Benaki Museum; attend a ballet at the Greek National Opera, take a stroll at the National Library followed by a nightcap at the SNFCC; or take in the riches of the newly revamped National Gallery.
