Situated 100m within the walls of the old city, on one of the main roads, this hotel is within walking distance from all the main attractions.

If you have a car and you should know it is difficult to park your your car inside the city. Athena provides free of charge parking. But be careful, as they don't have reservation system, so first come first serve though you can state when you book the hotel. If you come late, and the car park lot is full,...

The hotel is (just) within the city walls, and an easy, pleasant stroll to the main city attractions (5 minutes to the Duomo, 10 to the Campo). We shared a family room which was comfortable for two adults and two teenagers. The terrace bar is a delightful feature, whether for drinks, snacks or a full meal. Free car-parking and wi-fi...

Excellent place to stay. Spacious rooms and bathroom. Very friendly staff (they speak many languages if you need it). Pleasant terrace to drink, eat (not too expansive) or just enjoy the sun. Just walk 3 minutes to enter the city center. Private parking. I don't see any default in this hotel.

Within easy walking distance to all the main attractions, we liked the fact that the Athena was far enough away from the city center that it was relatively quiet and not overrun by traffic or pedestrians. If you have serious mobility issues, note that there is a short uphill walk (5 minutes) to get to the more popular areas. Our...
