Apartment's location makes it unbeatable. It is located exactly in the city center, at the most famous area of Athens (Gazi and Thissio) where the heart of old Athens beats. 2min walk away from Gazi Square, the new big thing in Athens, full of cafes, bars, galleries, theatres and clubs.Technopolis (Gazi) is an industrial museum and a major cultural venue of the city, where major festivals are held throughout the year. Within 300m reach you can find a grocery store, kiosk, traditional goods shop, supermarket, pharmacy, bakery, taverns, etc... Within 5 min walk you can find Lais, the Greek Film Archive with indoor and outdoor cinema, Gazarte, a restaurant, bar, cinema and a wonderful music venue that has hosted from Dee Dee Bridgwater to Imany as well as the Gazi Concert Hall that has hosted from Tricky to Tendermoller.The apartment is exactly at Iraklidon street where the famous cafe and restaurants are. Iraklidon street is one of the most famous and rich streets of Athens as the same street leads to Apostolou Pavlou street where the Acropolis and Parthenon are! This area is for sure the best place to stay when visiting the city. You can easily reach the historical Philopappos hill, where Pnyx and Philopappos monument are, and wander around as there are nice paths all over the hill and also parts with panoramic views (also nice sun-sets). You can enjoy sun-bathing or reading a book lying under a tree and relaxing with the bird sounds. After crossing the hill (15 min walk) you reach Acropolis hill, Acropolis museum and Ancient Agora, all three not to be missed sites. Other most interesting, nearby areas, which can also be reached easily on foot, are Plaka (ask the way to Anafiotika – you will be impressed), Kerameikos, Monastiraki and its Flea Market, Thisseion, Dionyssiou Areopagitou and Apostolou Pavlou pedestrian zones and Ermou Street (the main shopping street in Athens). They are all touristy places with cafes, restaurants and shops without traffic and the busy atmosphere of other places in Athens. Transportation is a main reason. The area is very well serviced by many metro stations, bus and tram. There are at least 3 metro stations near the apartment including the central metro station of the city, where the airport train arrives and the bus from the airport as well. There is also the one and only tram line of the city departing close by, which it can transports you to the south suburbs of Athens, where the best beaches are. The house is situated in a: -5 min walking distance to M3 metro station (Kerameikos-connection to Monastiraki, Syntagma square and Airport) -5 min walking distance to M1 metro station (Thissio-connection to Pireaus port) What I like the most of this area is the fact that it is always alive, full of things to do, on a walking distance. Whatever you might need is on your feet. Acropolis is a 15 mins walk. Plaka, the small village under the Acropolis, is practically your neighborhood. Movies, theaters, Acropolis museum, the best restaurants of the city, all are around. Lately this area became the place to be, for its nightlife as well. The hippiest bars and tavernas of the city are located here. This is the place, us Greeks, we go out the most, during the nights as well. Acropolis, Ancient Agora, Marble Stadium, Athens National Gardens, Theater of the Herodeon, Conference facilities...
