This is outside the front gate of the Acropolis. It is a large outcropping of rocks that you can view the Acropolis from and also get great views over the city of Athens. Just beware that the rocks can be a little slippery so take care. A really great place to get some good photos.

The Areopagus in Athens is a fascinating place. Located at the northern foot of the Acropolis it is readily visible from the main gates of the Acropolis. Also called Mars Hill, it is the ancient site for the people of Athens to congregate and for speakers and orators of the day to address the public. Most importantly to Christians of the present time, this is the location where St. Paul addressed the Greeks when he was preaching in Athens during the first century. As such, it is a very important part of our history and culture. My Wife and I had seen The Areopagus from the Acropolis on several previous trips to Athens, but this trip was the first time that we actually walked over to, and climbed up to the top of, The Areopagus. It isn't that high up and the steps and stairs (an older, steeper stone set and a newer steel staircase with an easier gradient) aren't that long or steep. The stone steps are uneven and can be slippery in damp weather while the top of The Areopagus is rough and uneven and footing might be a bit dodgy in a large crowd of tourists. Although not as high as the Acropolis, there is a nice 360 degree view of the adjoining area and the nearby city. Don't miss the opportunity to stand in the footsteps of the Great Apostle St. Paul.

On the northern slopes of the Acropolis it is evocative in its long history, from pre-classical centuries to Roman times. During aristocrat rule it was the seat of courts and the ruling council. With the arrival of the golden era some functions moved to the Hill of Pnyx. It was fascinating to learn in Roman times St. Paul delivered one of his sermons here.

This mount is not to be missed as it gives you spectacular views over the vast city and the back of the Acropolis. However, be sure to also visit Philopappos Hill for even better views! Make sure you wear flat shoes as the vantage points for viewing are mainly rocks which are extremely slippery and dangerous.
