Venue

We will be holding the Aimsun Users’ Meeting in the Semiramis design hotel in the town of Kifissia just outside Athens. Kifissia has a gentler climate than Athens and a reputation as an exclusive escape, with plenty of fine restaurants and bars.

The Semiramis itself is a radical departure from classical Greek architecture, where bright sweetshop colors, curvaceous furniture and rubber floors play alongside a rotating collection of contemporary fine art.

Nearest airport: Athens Airport is 30 km away or a 20-minute drive.
