Brilliant visit to the observatory. We went on the English tour at 9pm and it was very interesting. The two physicists were really interesting and passionate about science and the observatory. It ended with the whole group being able to look through the telescope at...More

Booked into one of the night tours at the observatory last week and was not disappointed. Unless you are a big group l, you can’t book in advance so turn up early-21:40 for the English tour.

Lovely place to visit. We learns a lot and found the whole visit interesting. For 5 Euros it’s awesome value. The only advise I would give is to find out tour times before you go as they close the gates in between the tours and...More

It was one of the most impressive moments in Athens - perfect place with amazing view to Acropolis, but still in the "dark mystical park" where you can feel the history. Dont forget to visit it during the night to see the Moon through their...More
Though we did not go into the observatory, we found it to be one of the best locations to get a view of the Acropolis. The groves of olive trees nearby are interesting for travelers who don’t often see them at home.
On a clear winter night we chose to visit the observatory of Athens in Thisio. After star gazing through the old telescope and admiring Parthenon from Philopapou hill, we got to enter to the main observatory building where our guide took us through the various...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.
