We took the back way to get to Acropolis and happened upon Mars Hill/Aerpagus. We weren't even looking for it at the time. You can walk up one of two ways a set of stairs or you can walk up the rocks. The rocks are...More

It is on the way down from the Acropolis, dont miss it. It is here that the apostle Paul addressed the Greeks on there belief system ( Acts 17:24 ). It was cool to sit atop and read Acts 17 as a family. It is...More

I would add this site to your list when visiting the Acropolis. Its free to visit and you'll get a good view of the Acropolis. Its a bit steep but its not too bad.

I visited here on my first night in Athens by accident while roaming around. It's near the base of the Parthenon and a must while visiting.

When you buy the pass to the Acropolis there are a lot of things included. You should aim to get there early so you can make the most of your tour. This site is included in that package. It's worth a look.

This is a huge rock, or collection of rocks perhaps, just below the Acropolis, on the way up. In ancient times the Athenians used this site to conduct important trials, in other words this was the place of their High Court, trying cases such as...More

Above the Agora is Mars Hill. The rocky staircase is polished to a slippery shine from the footsteps of people over the centuries. People wearing flip flops were either slipping or falling with almost every step. A top this rock was where the apostle, St....More
