Access to explore the Philoappos Hill is free and a walk around the trials and paths lead to unexpected views over the Acropolis and historic sites, sometimes a little hidden and difficult to find. Never the less perseverance does pay off. The monument is located...More

This monument sits at the top of the Philoappos hill and is worth the short climb to the top for both the monument and also the fantastic view. Bring water and a camera. Free entry

At the top of the hill a great view on Acropolis and the theatre. It is very easy to climb at the top (10 minutes of walking) and the view is so amazing. You can also visit Socrates prison and some very old part of...More

I agree with people who say the monument is not the greatest thing, but you mainly come to this place for the views it offers.

It is a bit of a steep climb up hill. The monument itself is heavily detoriated and there is hardly anything left from the fortress walls from 4th century BC. Still it is worth the effort, the monument is still a beautifull piece of art....More

The view from here of Athens is beautiful. The ruins of the structure is good to take a photo. A good place to go up and see.

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

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
