I climbed to the hill on a summer evening in 2017. The climb can be done in about 20 minutes depending on your pace. I initially felt unsafe as I felt like someone was following me from behind, and whenever I stop to look behind,...More

A nice green area with shade as you climb along many paths up towards the more exposed summit at the peak.

The best view of the entire Acropolis complex is from here. In fact the best view of perhaps the entire Athens, including the Aegean sea & the harbor is from here. A short but nice hike up the hill. Full of olive trees.

Even though I have climbed the Hill when it was windy and about to rain, I couldn't but spend good 20 minutes on the top overlooking a brilliant view onto the heart of the Greek capital. Recommend to everyone, there is a 'wild' unbeaten path...More

You climb the hill smoothly, through a lot of green trees. At the end you can admire a view of the sea on one side and Acropolis and the city at the other. With a good weather you cannot miss this point.

Hills of the Nymphs-Phyx-Muses have some of the most stunning views we saw while in Athens. Every direction you look is something new to see. It is completely worth the climb!

There is no parking beside the hill, the closest parking will be either the Acropolis parking or down beside the acropolis museum. You'd be best parking down on Mitropolis Street and walking up from there.

Sorry, we have no information on this, though perhaps the Athens Tourist Information may be able to offer advice.
