Description

To truly appreciate Athens you need to climb high. The city’s rooftops are transformed and invite those who seek a genuine Athenian experience to sit at the bars that seem to hang around the Acropolis. As you take in the view of the Parthenon, challenge the wit, wisdom, and drinking capacity of the ancient Athenians with a cocktail in your hand.
