10 Beautiful Airbnbs in Athens for the Perfect Grecian Holiday

Experience the best of Greek hospitality at these Airbnbs!

Anyone fascinated by history or Greek mythology will certainly have Athens on their travel bucket list. The stunning city was the heart of Ancient Greek civilisation, and while it’s certainly been modernised in many ways, we can still see remnants of its rich history. Besides its temples and historical sites, the ancient concept of xenia (guest-friendship) lives on in the Greek capital. It’s no longer a code of conduct that citizens are required to live by, but locals provide visitors with the warmest hospitality, that we can’t help but chalk it up to the old Greek concept. And what better way to experience Greek hospitality than by staying at a local’s home? Skip the pricey hotel stay and receive a warm welcome at one of these stunning Airbnbs in Athens instead. We promise you won’t regret it!
