I am going with friends on a cruise that ends in Athens. I've been there before and seen the major sights. But my pals haven't been to Athens and want to see the Acropolis etc. so they want an overnight there after the cruise.
I really don't want to stay in Athens itself. Can anyone recommend an area (beach or waterfront, maybe? Other?) where we can easily get into Athens for a day of sightseeing, then easy access to the airport the next morning? I'd like a nice hotel that would be relaxing for this last night....maybe a nice bar/lounge with views or something like that? thanks.
