My husband and I are traveling to Athens in late January. It's our first visit. I know everyone goes to Greece for the museums and architecture etc., but we travel to experience the culture of a city. The neighborhoods, the restaurants, the coffee shops, the people. We don't like to stay in the usual touristy neighborhoods. We're not looking for an inexpensive place to stay. We're looking for someplace with nice rooms and king sized beds.
I would love it if someone could recommend an area or some places that fit this description. I'm also wondering if we'd enjoy staying at a seaside resort. We love the ocean even when it's not warm. Thank you!
