The apartment "Persephone" is located in Gazi, a gay-friendly area, and the center of Athens nightlife. The apartment is 1 min from the Kerameikos subway station. 10 min from ancient Agora and 15 min from Plaka. There are plenty of nice restaurants and typical Greek taverns where you can taste world-famous Greek cuisine.

The space

My place is a spacious apartment on top of the metro (subway) station Kerameikos. At the area, you can easily find an outdoor bar with or without a live band, and lots of people casually drinking and hanging out. It’s the perfect place to hang out and chat with friends or meet and mingle with the Athenians!

Guest access

When you come from the airport you take the subway and come directly at home. If you need to go to Piraeus Port you can take again the subway and change after one station at Monastiraki and then go straight to Piraeus, take a boat for the lovely and unique Greek Islands!
If you need a taxi just ask me and I will call a friend taxi driver who can pick you up from the airport.

Interaction with guests

I will always be there if you need me. I like to meet my guests, and if they want it we can also socialize!

Other things to note

In Greek mythology, Persephone (Greek: Περσεφόνη) is the daughter of Zeus and the harvest-goddess Demeter and is the queen of the underworld. Homer describes her as the formidable, venerable majestic princess of the underworld. Persephone was married to Hades, the god-king of the underworld. The myth of her abduction represents her function as the personification of vegetation, which shoots forth in spring and withdraws into the earth after harvest; hence, she is also associated with spring as well as the fertility of vegetation. Similar myths appear in the Orient, in the cults of male gods like Attis, Adonis and Osiris, and in Minoan Crete.
Persephone as a vegetation goddess and her mother Demeter were the central figures of the Eleusinian mysteries that predated the Olympian pantheon and promised the initiated a more enjoyable prospect after death. The origins of her cult are uncertain, but it was based on very old agrarian cults of agricultural communities.
Persephone was commonly worshiped along with Demeter and with the same mysteries. To her alone were dedicated the mysteries celebrated at Athens in the month of Anthesterion (February/March). In Classical Greek art, Persephone is invariably portrayed robed, often carrying a sheaf of grain. She may appear as a mystical divinity with a scepter and a little box, but she was mostly represented in the process of being carried off by Hades.
In Roman mythology, she is called Proserpina.

Everything was even better than we expected. The apartment is very clean, spacious and handy. The location is perfect, the view is excellent. Ioanna was very cheerful and helpful with all we asked for. Finding some food and drinks in the fridge was really important for us. Indeed, Friday and Saturday nights were noisy, but we came back lately and slept well. Closer to the morning music stops, and you can sleep enough in silence.

Ioanna's apartment is exactly as shown in the photographs although nothing can prepare you for the breathtaking view. Ioanna provided essentials plus a couple of goodies. The apartment is so convenient in location to the train, with being only 1 or 2 stops away from connecting stations. Plenty of choice for eating. It is true about the nightlife, the locals sure know how to party. Earplugs are essential, especially on Friday and Saturday nights.

This was a wonderful trip to Athens. Ioanna was very welcoming and helpful with advice for our trip. This is a prime location next to many restaurants, markets, and close walking distance to Acropolis area and Parthenon.

This apartment will be your perfect place to stay while in Athens. I can’t say enough how wonderful my experience was. The apartment is impeccably styled and immaculate! The metro station is directly across the street. Apartment is also walking distance to the acropolis and dining. Ioanna will also be your perfect host. I certainly will be staying here again once I return.

This place was so cute and absolutely spotless. It had the nicest bathroom of anywhere we stayed in Greece. Ioanna met us in person to let us in and brought us fresh fruit from her home. The nightlife is right outside the door, making for a fun atmosphere. The music from the nearby clubs does play quite loudly and pretty much all night, but I consider myself a light sleeper and had no problems sleeping comfortably.
