There are more surprises than meets the eye in the busy center of Athens. Built on the banks of the ancient Ilissos river, once mentioned in Plato’s writings and still flowing secretly beneath the property’s main road, the Crowne Plaza Athens City Center is an ultra-modern tribute to Athens’ rich past and the city’s millennia of fascinating history.
