Athens

15 of 27

The sun-kissed, whitewashed Greek Islands have stolen the hearts of countless travelers. But lately, Athens looks increasingly attractive. Start in the historic and newly hip neighborhood of Plaka, where boutique hotel New is making waves for its artsy design (including an installation by Laurie Anderson) and a rooftop bar featuring a 2,000-strong library and breathtaking views. The Island Club Restaurant, meanwhile, on the so-called Athens Riviera, is a magnet for A-listers like designer Valentino. Join them at this cliff-top bar overlooking the Argosaronic Gulf to listen to music and sip champagne or Greek wines at candlelit tables. There’s even a private beach for midnight dips.
