Athens and the surrounding areas are full of Archeological sites, which exist either in the city and the urban void, or in areas that are by the sea and are directly affected by the natural environment, like: The Temple of Poseidon at Sounion, The Temple of Aphaia at Aegina Island and of course the Fighters Tomb of the Naval Battle in Salamis Island. Areas located 50′-1:15’ from the City Center and easily accessible by public transport. All the projects will be presented at the online art magazine after the end of every resident.

From the residency within 5 min walk are accessible the Athens Municipal Art Gallery and the Contemporary Art Galleries: Rebecca Camhi and The Breeder. Also, is very easy to access Athens School of Fine Arts (ASFA) and Benaki Museum.

Metaxourgio is the most interesting artistic and trendy upcoming area of Athens, very close to Monastiraki, the Ancient Agora, Plaka and of course with direct access to the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum (4 stops with the metro line Anthoupoli-Ellikiko).
