Visit at afternoon a half hour before sunset. Absolutely great view to the acropolis and excellent place for a take a amazing photos. You don't need a hiking shoes but a bottle of water will be more than usefull.
...and we saw it from every angle. The hill is a calm place easily accessed from the broad promenade starting at the Akropolis Museum. You can see the whole city on all sides down to Piraeus port. The hill features some minor yet very interesting...More
Located near the Acropolis. Lovely walks in a peaceful setting . Socrates prison is here along with other interesting historical places.
The climb up to the Philopappos monument is well worth it as the views are amazing. The view of the Acropolis opposite is superb....More
If you're looking for views of all of Athens this is the way to go. The hike isn't bad, but I'd recommend doing it when it's cooler. There is still a good amount of shade on the paths, so that is nice.
We really only wanted to see Socrates' Prison but there is so much more on this easy to climb hill and admission is free! This is a little oasis of peace and quiet. There are lots of trees and shrubs, some in beautiful colours. At...More
A monument can be found at the highest point in Athens, its an easy walk up and a wonderful view on arrival, a complete 360-degree view of the city. Certainly, a photographer dream.

This hill is quite a climb - but the paths are good and there are trees to take rest under along the way. At the top there is opportunity for the best views and photos over Athens - besides the obvious Acropolis photos - the...More
In this place you can hike/walking to the top of this place and see how wonderful this place and how wonderful athens is. You can see 360° View panorama of athens city including Acropolis ruins. nice place to end my trip in this city.
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.
