Valentine’s day is just around the corner and we know that some of you might have forgotten or have not had the time to plan something yet! Don’t worry, all of us at Scale Suites are here to help you make the most out of your stay in Athens.
But because we don’t know the type of activities you like, we have decided to offer a range of romantic choices to make sure we satisfy your taste.
If you are a day person…
Take a walk around the National Garden. Considered to be a small piece of heaven in the frenzy of central Athens, the National Garden is just a short walk from Syntagma Square and has 7 different entrances. The garden hosts approximately 519 different species of plants and trees with 102 of them being Greek. There, you will get excellent views of the Greek nature and absorb some of the winter sun. If the weather is nice, as it has been the past few days, you can always prepare some picnic snacks to take along! Otherwise, you can treat yourself to a real Greek delicacy, a ‘koulouri’ sold by many vendors around the garden.
Or maybe you can stroll on the beach at the Athenian Riviera.
Who said you can’t go to the beach during winter time? If you are more of a beach person, then this is the activity for you! Take your shoes off and start walking on the sand together with your partner. If you get tired or cold, you can always stop for a glass of bubbles in one of the seaside coffee shops and bars and enjoy the magnificent sea view.
If you’d rather do something during the night though…
Make a dinner reservation at one of Athens’ roof top restaurants. Enjoy some exquisite dishes and a glass of wine with a great view of the Acropolis. Some excellent options are the Galaxy Bar at Hilton Athens, Hytra at the Onassis Arts Centre, or if you’re looking for something more relaxed try 360 degrees right next to Monastiraki station.
Indulge in a refreshing cocktail in one of the top cocktail bars in the world. Not just one but two cocktail bars in Athens have been included in the top 50 cocktail bars in the world list of 2017. The ‘Clumsies’, number 6 on the list, is perfect for those of you who love to mingle in a young crowd and dance the night away. ‘Baba au Rum’ is the 30th best bar in the world and has a more relaxed vibe and claims to hold the largest rum selection in Europe. We don’t know if that’s the case but why don’t you take a look yourself?
No matter what kind of activity you decide to go for, our friendly staff is happy to help you along the process of surprising your partner with a romantic gesture!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
