" A live piano performance provided the perfect background to the evening "
With breath-taking views of the fabled Acropolis, regal Syntagma Square and the Parliament building, our Bailliage held a fantastic dinner at the multi-awarded 5-star Hotel Grande Bretagne, located in the heart of Athens city. This very successful event, which took place on Monday, May 16th, was attended by many members and friends of the Chaîne.
