Hotels in Athens and the Heart of Greece Tour ?

Hi,

My husband and I are going to tour Greece in April 08. We are going to loosely follow the Athens and the Heart of Greece 14 day tour plan but on our own terms and maybe skip some things. I would love to know where the real tour stays on the stops (Athens, Delphi, Dimitsana, Kardamyli, Gythio, Nafplio, and Hydra) or have recommendations from you.

Thanks for the help!

I don't know where the Heart of Greece tour stops but a couple of suggestions:

In Delphi I stayed at the Acropole - http://www.delphi.com.gr/acropole/index.html - which was very comfortable and had great views.

In Athens it's worth looking at the Tempi - http://www.travelling.gr/tempihotel/ - or the Attalos - http://www.attalos.gr/more.htm.

In Gythion we stayed at the Pantheon - http://www.gto.gr/eng/accomm/hotel/detail.php?id=5969 - which was fine, but I'm not convinced Gythion is actually worth a visit. It's a nice little provincial town but not much there.

However, I would add Sparta to the list if you are interested in sites. Mystra, which is about 20 minutes by bus out of Sparta, is really beautiful. The home of the last Byzantine emperors once Constantinople had fallen.

Mail me privately if you want more details / thoughts. I'm running out of space here!

Cheers
Alan
