..AND A BIT OF HISTORY :
Petralona is named after the Greek words 'Petrina Alonia' (πέτρινα αλώνια) which means 'stone threshing floors', which were used in the area to thresh grain before urbanisation. The area was also known as Katsikadika (Greek: Κατσικάδικα), due to the presence of goat herders in the area who used to give out milk to the residents. Goats were banned from the city of Athens in February 1925 and from that point on, the area has held its current name.
Ancient Agora of Athens is 1.7 km from Athens City Studios,
The Ancient Agora of Athens is the open space that is located close to the northwest of the Acropolis. In antiquity it was administrative, philosophical, educational, social, cultural, and especially the financial center of the city.
The Ancient Agora was crossed by the Panathenaean Road from which the great procession to the Acropolis passed during the Panathenaic celebrations established by Peisistratus and was the third year of each Olympiad.
In it were erected the most important public buildings and sanctuaries of Athens and a strong administrative, political, judicial, commercial, social, cultural and religious activity developed. The sequence of the ages of the Agora reflects the evolutionary course of the democratic system in the five centuries of existence of the city-state.
The Acropolis Museum (is 2.9 km from Athens City Studios,) is an archaeological museum focused on the findings of the archaeological site of the Acropolis of Athens. The museum was built to house every artifact found on the rock and on the surrounding slopes, from the Greek Bronze Age to Roman and Byzantine Greece. It also lies over the ruins of a part of Roman and early Byzantine Athens.
The museum was founded in 2003, while the Organization of the Museum was established in 2008. It opened to the public on 20 June 2009. Nearly 4,000 objects are exhibited over an area of 14,000 square metres.
The museum is located by the southeastern slope of the Acropolis hill, on the ancient road that led up to the "sacred rock" in classical times. Set only 280 meters (310 yd), away from the Parthenon, and a mere 400 meters (440 yd) walking distance from it, the museum is the largest modern building erected so close to the ancient site, although many other buildings from the last 150 years are located closer to the Acropolis. The entrance to the building is on Dionysiou Areopagitou Street and directly adjacent to the Akropoli metro station the red line of the Athens Metro.
Thiseio or Thissio (Greek: Θησείο, pronounced [θiˈsio]) is the name of a traditional neighbourhood in downtown Athens, Greece, northwest of the Acropolis, 1.5 km southwest of downtown. (is 2.9 km from Athens City Studios,)
Long ago, the name was derived from the Temple of Hephaestus which was mistakenly known as Thiseion in reference to Theseus, the mythical king of Athens, which gave rise to the neighbourhood being named Thiseio.
The area has many cafés and cultural meeting points. Thiseio is served by the nearby Thissio ISAP station or Thiseio metro station.
Thiseio is surrounded by hills, heights and historical sites which are within a walking distance. The Ancient Agora of Athens, Stoa of Attalos, the Temple of Hephaestus and Kerameikos Archaeological Museum can be entered from Thiseio; all others: the National Observatory of Athens, Acropolis of Athens, Philopappos Monument, Mouseion Hill, Pnyx, which is considered the birthplace of Democracy and the Mount Lycabettus can be easily reached or viewed from Thiseio. The panoramic views of them and their natural surroundings from the Areopagus height are spectacular, especially by night.
