4) On Monday and Tuesday mornings, accompanying persons may join sight-seeing bus tours to the centre of Athens (Monday) and Sounion (the Temple of Poseidon at the South tip of Attica, on Tuesday). Please arrange with the EDEN Hotel.

In addition, EDEN Hotel can organize various other excursions around Attica, a 1-day cruise to the Saronic Gulf Islands of Aegina, Hydra and Poros etc, if enough persons are interested. Please contact the Hotel directly.

Also, as mentioned elsewhere in this site, there is regular public bus service right outside the Hotel going South to Sounion and North to Athens. The traditional fishing village of Palea Fokea can be reached on foot (about 2km away on the road to Sounion) and is well worth a visit too.

We hope all persons attending will have a fantastic time and we look forward to meeting you all.
