Pleasant stroll up and down the slopes, with criss-crossing trails and ancient sites to explore. Also great monument at top, with excellent views of Acropolis, to the sea and around Athens.

The hill is truly beautiful to walk in every morning. It's totally separated from the city and people. It's an amazing green forest to embrace nature in.

While you will be around Acropolis area it is nice to take some time off for a walk around the Filopappos Hill. You will have a great view of the city and the sea front and it will be also a nice opportunity to be off the turistic area for a while.
