Athens - Greece 2004...

March 2004


The Olympics are returning home, only the reconstruction of Athens, and of course much of Greece is causing more excitement and pride amongst the Greeks. Athens and Greece in general is continually changing, with so much more to offer to the world traveler than ever before.

The achievements are impressive: the most modern airport in the world, innumerable new highways and roads, the recently initiated Metro, currently being extended up to and including the airport, more hotels renovated or totally reconstructed, massive new Stadiums suitable for large conferences after the Olympics, repaving of sidewalks in downtown Athens, and renovation of all major archaeological museums. In brief, if you remember Athens as it used to be, you are about to be amazed by the new Athens.

What hasn’t changed however is the awe of its archaeological sites, the magnificence of the Parthenon, the bright sunny days, the fun loving atmosphere and of course the Greek hospitality.

Whatever the size of your group, Conceptours can develop program to suit. With so many new Olympic venues of various sizes, there is one to easily accommodate your particular group. This is to take nothing away from the wonderful array of private venues suitable for that very special function day or night. Take advantage of one of the many seaside venues that will give your guest the feel that they own one of Greece’s magical islands, or perhaps you would prefer a more unique venue like a private home that doubles as a museum as well an art gallery housing an extensive range of works of art by renowned Greek artists. For those who want a touch of the ancient, there is the private home of a former actor. He has built an ancient style theatre to hold up to 700 guests, ideal for that special awards ceremony followed by dinner in the gardens. Added to these type of venues is a growing list of historical museums including Benaki, possibly the most beautiful museum in Athens and the Byzantine Museum with its rolling lawns and gardens to which we can add also the most beautiful structure in down town Athens, in one of the most beautiful locations, Zappio in the National Gardens.

A fun road rally will take your guests along the new highways through unique countryside to historical landmarks, whilst evening functions can include a mix of elegant gala’s, fun casual evening including beach or Greek island/village parties, ancient style events including the re-enactment of the lighting of the Olympic flame or toga parties to name just a few.

Even the restaurants in Athens have been rejuvenated, with Michelin award winning chefs, superb locations with birds-eye city views, or the feel of dining right on the Acropolis. The fun loving taverns with delicious simple home cooked meals, still remain however as strong if not stronger than ever.

If you’ve never been to Greece or are a regular visitor, this is a new Greece and Athens like you’ve never seen before. We look forward to welcoming you here at the very home of the Olympics and more importantly of the Olympic spirit.
