Lunch at Metropolitan Hotel Athens

Buffet Lunch is Served

Our day in Athens began quite early with our arrival at the Acropolis around 7:30 AM.   After climbing the 80 steep steps and entering through the Propylaea, we explored this ancient city for several hours before heading to our second stop in Plaka.

All that walking has helped us work up quite an appetite for some food.   Our all day tour included a hot and cold buffet lunch complete with a glass of wine and Greek pastries for dessert.  Did we mention that we really love Baklava?

Metropolitan Hotel Athens

Chandris Hotels operates the cosmopolitan Metropolitan Hotel Athens located in central Athens.  With a view to both the Acropolis and the Aegean Sea, the fully renovated Metropolitan hotel is ideally situated in front of the Faleron Olympic Coastal Park for both leisure and business travelers.  If you are looking for a hotel in central Athens, we would certainly suggest investigating this hotel - the food was excellent as was the service.

When in Greece...

You must have some lamb, classic Greek Moussaka, Spanakopita, and Pastitsio (one of my favorites on the buffet it consists of luscious layers of seasoned ground beef, pasta, and a creamy bechamel sauce baked to perfection).  All these items and more were waiting for us as we arrived for lunch.  And, did I mention that they had several kinds of Baklava?

Following lunch it was time to continue our drive to Cape Sounion. Before we get there, we'll show you some of downtown Athens and the scenic drive to Sounion.
