Well worth the time to visit, as offers a variety of shaded paths to the top, with stunning views over the city and acropolis. A number of other attractions dotted over the hill, included 'Socrates prison'.

A great place to visit not just for burning off the calories, but the spectacular views of Athens from the top are worth the effort. Ideal spot to take photos and/or videos. I thoroughly recommend visiting👍👍

If you want to make perfect photos about the Acropolis, just climb up to the Filopappos Hill. the view is very good, you can see the whole city, even the see.

Gorgeous views. Paths are well kept and it was not very hard to climb, although it seemed daunting looking from belo.

We went up the hill at the end of our day and I must say the walk was worth it. You will have a nice panoramic view over Athens and fantastic view of the Acropolis at the sunset.

I personally enjoyed walking up this hill. The views are magnificent. And the walk up there is not as tough as it seems.

We made our adventure up the hill in late afternoon / evening and had breathtaking views. Some spots were a bit touch on my knees, but i managed the deep "steps". It was well worth the climb. I brought a flashlight as it was becoming dusk and that was a big help. Or you can use the light on your... More

Wonderful views as you climb to reach the Hill and great sights of the City once you get there. Highly recommended for those looking for an afternoon or a few hours of exercise which involves a gradually climb to the top for the view and the historical sights along the way.

It rarely gets busy here and it is definately worth the walk up to see the unrivalled Parthenon views!

this area, along with the Hill of the nymphs, is a great place to wander about an explorer without huge crowds or hassle and a break from shopping and tourist attractions. The views are great of the city and of the Acropolis. Highly recommend.

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighborhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
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 pedestrianized 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 centerpiece 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.
