The property lies in Ambelokipoi district, a stone’s throw from the Athenian Historic center and next to Panormou neighborhood which is established as one of the liveliest of Athens nightlife scene.
The district of Ampelokipoi is situated at the northeastern of Athens and is one of the most populated. The only two skyscrapers of Athens are located here. Historically it has been inhabited since 1880 and it was filled with streams and fields, while in the decades of 1960s and the 1970s it met with a reconstruction. Nowadays the area is chosen by many university students, it is near the commercial triangle and has a lot of bars, cafes and restaurants.
Not far at all, you will find LYCABETTUS HILL, the highest point of Athens, rising 277 meters above the city. You can reach it taking the funicular at Ploutarchou street (Evangelismos Metro Station). On top of this peak you will find the small whitewashed chapel of Agios Georgios (St. George). Enjoy the spectacular panoramic view of the city, the open-air amphitheater, the Acropolis and the mountains surrounding Athens. Have a drink or dine in the café/restaurant at the top, and let the wind on the observation deck cool you down.
MAVILI SQUARE: Under the hill of Lycabettus at the area of Ampelokipi and near the Megaron Athens Concert Hall is Mavili square, one of the liveliest squares of the city.
On two sides of the Hilton Hotel, which is a bit further down, are two important things to see for those who love art. On one side is the NATIONAL GALLERY, and in the small square in front of the Hilton is the Glass Man, a giant sculpture made of panes of glass, that was moved here from Omonia Square.
THE MEGARON MUSIC HALL opened in 1991 and is a state-of-the-art performance center, which has brought to Athens some of the most distinguished musicians and speakers including the Berlin Philharmonic, Orchestre National de France, Pietro Mascagni, Keith Jarrett, Jose van Dam, Issac Stern, Bolshoi Ballet, and Al Gore.
It is also the location of the BADMINTON THEATER, the former Olympic Badminton stadium which has been converted into a concert hall, one of the best places in Greece to see live music and theater.
One of the nicest areas of Ambelokipi is the PARK AT AG. THOMAS in Goudi, at the end of Papadiamantopoulou Street. It is just part of an extensive outdoor area of running and walking paths, basketball courts, soccer fields, artificial lakes and open space, one of the largest in Athens.
