Athens: Not Just a Stopover

Unfortunately, Athens had become a mere stopover for many of these tourists. Visitors are now typically spending a day or two to check out the Parthenon and a few other touristy spots, but are overall missing out on the real treasures of the city. HotelsCombined, the world’s leading hotel price comparison website, aims to change this.
