DIALOGUE SOIREES

At Academia of Athens, every Thursday from 18:00 to 19:30, we invite you to become part of a unique experience, the “Dialogue Soirees”. Drawn by Plato’s writings which are universally known as Plato’s Dialogues, the hotel introduces this intellectually stimulating and playful platform, the “Dialogues Soirees”, where guests have the opportunity to exchange ideas, connect and discuss universal notions like friendship, ethics or love. Every week a different Dialogue Soiree provides a special opportunity for intellectual creativity!

READING TIME

With social media practically ruling our everyday life, some of us may have forgotten what it is to actually ready a book and the pleasure we receive from this. At Academia of Athens, every day, for one hour in the early afternoon, it is Reading time. We encourage you to switch off your phones and other devices, and choose one of the books offered throughout all outlets of the hotel. In-room book delivery service is also available upon request. Guests can hold on to the books they borrow during their entire stay.
