Overlooking the Aegean Sea, a charming string of coastal neighbourhoods form the Athens Riviera, a serene escape from the constant activity in the city’s centre. A selection of high-end hotels lines the pristine stretch of beaches down to the southernmost point of the Attica Peninsula. The revamped Four Seasons Astir Palace, with a history of housing foreign dignitaries and film stars of the 1960s, is the most luxurious hotel in Athens, perhaps even in all of Greece. The night club, Island, is bringing back the glamour and excitement of the twentieth-century bouzouki clubs reminiscent of names such as Melina Mercouri and Stavros Niarchos.

Athens is experiencing a revival—in art, nightlife and design. For a metropolis constantly associated with the past, the modern strides in development and culture are sometimes overlooked in favour of the ruins and artifacts from antiquity. When in fact, the juxtaposition only enhances the beauty of both. Athens Riviera puts the old-world beside the new-world and a deeper understanding of this ancient capital emerges. With one foot in the past and one foot in the future; access to both the electricity of city life and the tranquillity of a beachside resort, Athens cannot be defined in simple terms. One just has to experience it for themselves.
