Nice green area; for a nice late afternoon walk to the top of Filopappos Hill. With an amazing view of the city'
We went to the Filopappos hill on our first day, before even visiting Acropolis. It turned out to be a great idea. The place is quite empty in November so you can just walk around without seeing a single tourist. The park is beautiful and it really has the best view on the Acropolis. Don't miss it.
you can visit Acropoli from normal entrance, and you can enjoy it from near & amazed with its massiveness.... but if you prefer to look it in front of you, in a more beautiful view, to hike to this hill and see Acropoli from another view... I & my wife hike (took about an hour slowly walk) this hill in... More
Philopappos was a Roman prefect that wanted to be burried across the Acropolis, thus the name. Nevertheless this hill offers excellent view. From One side Piraeus, and fron the others center of Athens, Western part and Panathinaikon stadium, the stadium where the olympics of 1896 took place.

An excellent spot for uphill walking exercise and for enjoying great views of the Acropolis and the modern city. Photographs of the Acropolis are easier from here than from Mount Lycabettus because of the positon of the sun.
On your way to acropolis hill you can take a break at filopappos hill.it is the best spot to take pictures of the acropolis entrance and acropolis hill. At night plenty of young people gather there and have a night with guitars singing over the silent city lights :) beware of the slippery rocks!
