Hotel Grande Bretagne will be the main venue for the 9th Edition of the Travel Trade Athens. Located in the heart of Athens, the Hotel Grande Bretagne enjoys the ideal location in the city centre and has been repeatedly awarded by significant international communities. With 320 rooms & suites, an awarded GB Spa, 3 significant restaurants and 1,100 square meters of function space, the landmark hotel is the ultimate choice for business & exploration.
Welcome drinks will be held on the beautiful “Le Grand Balcon” on the 6th floor of the St George Lycabettus hotel. The hotel, nestled against the pine-forested slopes of Lycabettus Hill in the most exclusive district of Athens, Kolonaki, offers panoramic views over Athens to the Acropolis and the Saronic Gulf beyond, but the views from Le Grand Balcon are simply spectacular and incomparable. With 154 newly renovated & uniquely decorated rooms and suites, the hotel offers a variety of styles per floor and corridor feature aspects of Greek art & civilization.
Located in Vouliagmeni’s idyllic, amphitheatrical bay, just below En Plo, Blue Fish, with its stone walls, white tables and rustic décor sets the tone for an unhurried meal. This is the closest you can get to having a meal on the water and what’s more, unlike its cheesier and pricier seaside counterparts serving mediocre frozen calamars and soggy fries, the food here is a delightfully engaging play on textures and flavours. The chef here skillfully combines the simplicity and purity of Greek cuisine with the refinement and sophistication of Japanese techniques to present some masterfully executed dishes. Perfect for pre- or postswim meals or indeed, in between dips!
Inside the gardens of the National Gallery. It’s well-kept lawns host sculptures, an amphitheatre, and many other buildings. There, also, Anassa emerges, a space of the senses, with an artistic point of view, retaining a royal glamour in the post-modern era. In a densely populated area of Athens, where the old royal stables use to be, a new events space is born.
