Arrival/Check-In: Although tired from a 13-hour flight to Dubai, we appreciated the warm welcome from the hotel valet, the doorman and the check-in team at the front desk. I knew I was going to feel right at home. Everyone else we came into contact with also gave a warm, welcoming smile that felt genuine. Check-in was hassle-free with a quick overview of the hotel, what was included in our stay and how to best enjoy our time in Dubai. We also enjoyed a delicious green tea drink at the front desk, a pleasant surprise.
The city took its name from Athena, goddess of wisdom, strategy and war, and protector of the city. The financial, political and administrative center of the country and an all-powerful city-state in antiquity, Athens is a major center of culture. A visit to the first-ever museum dedicated to Byzantium, a stroll around the National Garden and a trip to the Olympeion archaeological site will take you back through time.
