Such a lovely place to climb up &view Athens - nice spot to watch the sun go down & see the Acropolis from. The marble steps are very slippery and it is very rugged & slippy on top too. Busy in the evening with both...More
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
Just a short walk from the entrance path to the Acropolis, referred to as Aeropagus or Mars Hill. This massive marble outcrop below the Acropolis is worth the walk up the steep, narrow steps (alternate metal stairs with handrail to the left is an easier...More
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
How can you not be astonished to walk among standing ancient ruins that represent so much that shaped the course of human history? St. Paul's address to the philosophers of Athens occurred here and shaped western history!
This was such an overall positive experience. Many wonderful things to see and experience. There is a wonderful market to experience that is just beside the acropolis with various things to experience. There are so many things to experience here. I expect in fair way...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
we stumbled upon this by accident, it is free to climb. the views are spectacular, across the city and just outside the acropolis. we loved it so much by day, we decided to return to watch the sunset from this location and experience it by...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
sense of old commercial Athens, especially at the picturesque meat, fish and vegetable markets some way beyond the City Hall. The blocks to the west of Athinas are home to many Chinese and South Asian traders, adding a multicultural atmosphere to what was until the late 1990s a very homogenous society.
