After a long day of sightseeing, the best way to refresh yourself is to take a dip in a swimming pool or in the sea. Even though Athens has its splendid Riviera, choosing a hotel in the center for convenience means long taxi rides to the beach. The best alternative is a rooftop swimming pool, so you can take in the views as well. Lucky for you, here is a list of the top rooftop pools in Athens, Greece, so you too can enjoy your holiday to the fullest.
