The house is located not next to Plaka, but in the heart of it! It is the oldest part of Athens! Kidathineon str, Lisiou str, & Tripodon str are among many which exist since the 5th Century BC! Plaka is like a small village within the city, a neighborhood in the shadows of the Acropolis. The studio is located a block away from Kidathineon (the central road of Plaka) and Zappion (the National Garden).
All the historical places are five min walk distance. For the romantic ones, the “little train” can offer you a tour in the center. You just have to stop it when you meet it!
Down the corner, there’s the “Cine Paris”, the best outdoor movie theatre in Athens. All the movies are in english (with greek subs) and they are screened on the roof with a view of the Acropolis.
Around the apartment you may find mostly everything (shops, cafeterias, bars, traditional tavernas, pharmacies, hair salons, post office). Athen’s public transportation (bus, metro, tram) is reachable within five min or less!
