When you visit the Acropolis in Athens it is easy to miss this sight, walking up to the entry walk straight rather than turning right to the ticket booths. There is a big rock do climb up to the top for wonderful views of north...More

Gorgeous views from atop Mars Hill (Aeropagus)of Athens and the Acropolis. Avoid the slick stairs and use the modern metal staircase. Historical value and great Christian significance as well.

Best free view across Athens you'll find. You can find similar views elsewhere with rooftop bars (pricy cocktails) or at the top of Mount Lycabettus but this place was my favourite. Bit of a walk up, but it's free and was where St Paul did...More

For Catholic travelers, this is a must-see. Paul's speech recorded in Acts 17:16-34 was given right here on this very spot. Plus, the kids loved scrambling around the big boulder. I think we enjoyed this place twice as much as the actual acropolis next door....More

Great views of The Acropolis and Parthenon from the top, and, also, of Athens, which seems to spread into the far distance from all sides. Saint Paul preached a sermon from this rock. The climb up to the top can be difficult if you use...More

Omonia Square is as plain in appearance as Syntagma is
grand. Surrounded largely by functional blocks from
the 1950s and 60s and no longer boasting its
underground stalls, the square is now mostly
frequented by immigrants and bargain shoppers. The
most rewarding area to explore is to the south. Set
off down Athinas Street, with the Acropolis gradually
coming into focus in the distance, and you will get a
