The world’s ancient capital, Athens, is a very popular city to visit for many tourists, including disabled travelers. However, due to the age of the city and the buildings in it, finding a truly accessible Athens hotel can be tricky. Location, accessibility features and amenities differ from one accessible Athens hotel to the other, so the perfect hotel for you depends on what’s important to you.
