It's a perfect spot for if you want to see the sunrise and most of Athens in one go. The sun comes up behind the mountains and you slowly get to see Athens light up a little at a time. There's no large stairs or...More
You have the choice of taking the well-worn and less strenuous path or you can get off the beaten path and charge up the hill, even with some adventurous little ones and teenagers! Great view of the Acropolis and the city! Definitely a must AND...More
This was a quick, easy walk, with views of ancient ruins, the Acropolis , and the city. We loved it
and are glad we made time in the afternoon for this hike. Don’t skip this or pay for it. Google it and just go for...More
Hiked up to the top to sweat out a hangover. Didn’t stop at any of the spots on the hill besides the peak. The view of the acropolis was quite stunning but that’s not even counting the view of Athens and the Mediterranean. If you...More
This hill is also known as the “Hill of the Muses” where in ancient times, it was believed to be inhabited by the Nine Muses. There is no admission fee to ascend the hill. It was definitely worth the trip up the hill to see...More
Wonderful views overlooking Athens including a stunning look across to the Acropolis. Their nearby site of Pnyx is worthwhile as is the adjacent Old Observatory (exterior only). The walk up is not too steep and the surrounding neighborhoods are full of cafes and restaurants.
The hill offers excellent views of Attica and the Saronic Gulf and some of the best points for photographing the Acropolis. For me it was a nice place to have a break from the city. We were almost alone over here. The weather was great...More
Philopappos Hill is very near the Acropolis, with that said, the views to the Acropolis are the best and you can catch them in diferents angles while hiking up the hill, it is very instagramable I have to say. On your way down or before...More
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the
up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centrepiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.

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.
