Olympic Holidays Introduce Athenian Riviera

Olympic Holidays have introduced the Athenian Riviera for the first time in 2019. 

Ricky Wason, Head of Product and Purchasing said, 

“Remembering the destination in its heyday in the UK market where tour operators used to charter flights to Athens before the combination of other new destinations appearing on the radar via low cost airlines and the financial crisis that soon followed in Greece, the popularity of Athens from the uk market faded but in recent years with a regenerated economy and investment in the tourism industry, Athens has started to blossom again.”

“There quite a few reasons but when we reviewed the existing product range and strategy of the business moving forward it was quite clear that Athens was a must to include in the portfolio.”

Athens is not only another City on the map, there’s not many other Cities within Europe which offer fantastic coastal and beach resorts like Vouliagneni, Lagonissi and Vravrona to combine with a city break and the destination is also the gateway to explore islands like Andros, Poros & Spetses which are all also new to the Olympic programme for 2019.

The 4* Amarilia hotel in Vouliagmeni is an elegant and inviting hotel in one of the most exclusive areas close to Athens, yet far away from the crowds and bustle of downtown Athens. Located in the magnificent suburb of Vouliagmeni, only steps away from the sandy beach, Amarilia hotel has stunning views to one of the most envied seashores of the Athens’ coastline.

Guests can enjoy impeccable facilities and services provided by friendly and attentive personnel.
