Subject: Greece/Italy
Ciao Margaretha, My travel agent has given the best price for the 5 star hotel Kefalari Suites in Kifissia: 45000 drx per day, with excellent breakfast included. For the other hotels in Kifissia, she told me that, as she has not a collaboration, she has not special prices.   But if you have a car, why not stay close to the sea??? My friend has proposed some hotels in Vouliagmeni (they are all 4*) with excellent prices (in all breakfast is included): Hotel Armonia, in the main building 30000 drx per day Hotel Paradise, 22000 drx per day Hotel Plaza, 24000 drx per day   Also the excellent 4 star superior Lagonissi Xenia, in Lagonissi, with 18000 drx per day in the main building and 20000 drx per day in a bungalow. The 3 star superior Eden Beach in Anavyssos with 18000 drx per day half board (demin-pension). And finally the 4 star superior Mare Nostrum in  Vravrona with 23000 drx per day (this hotel is not so close to Athens, about 45' by car, but in an excellent location, in the coast).   Note that the 4 star hotels in Greece are not so expensive, as you can see the prices are similar to 2 star hotels in Zurich, while they have many facilities (the majority have a swimming pool) and very nice sea view!!!   By the way, when exactly are you planning to arrive in Athens and how long are you staying? Ciao for now Joanna
