What an incredible trip we had, In Athens the Arethusa Hotel was budget friendly, clean, spacious rooms and the staff were all smiles, the breakfast was abundant,a 2 minute walk from the Airport bus and Syntagma Square, centrally located near everything. The Greek Islands were amazing, The Celestyal Olympia Cruise ship was really good, friendly staff,very clean and food was delicious, Highly recommend all of the above.
