This is one of the sacred rocks of Ancient Athens and the place where the Supreme Court was situated. It's a perfect spot to a 360 degrees view of Athens, with a very close distance to the Acropolis. A favorite place to the Atheneans and the visitors of the city as well. You just have to be careful of the... More

Small hill next to the Acropolis. Great view of Athens, Philopappos Hill and Acropolis. During winter, windy at the top.

Since you are already in the accropolis it is ok to take the time to go up and some more pics of the parthenon.

An interesting site; it's said that the Apostle Paul delivered a famous speech from here; it is also associated with other government and religious figures. A very short walk from the Acropolis / Parthenon; very much worth it. I would be careful with children, elderly or infirm; there are steps to walk up and the rock itself might be slippery... More

This sounds hard to find, but it is not. I suggest you come from Plaka, climb up anafoitika-no sign so you'll have to guess from Plaka to Acropolis, climb up. Anafoitika isn't quite with white washed narrow (very) street, so I suggest you go there during the day time. Once you climb up, turn right and keeping going you'll see... More

Αreopagus is prominent rock is located northwest of the Acropolis. In classical times, it functioned as the court for trying deliberate homicide. Ares was supposed to have been tried here by the gods for the murder of Poseidon's son Halirrhothius. It is a nice place where you can see the view of Athens with naked eye. Perfect place for couples... More

A really large rock formation from which one of the New Testament apostles spoke. Regardless of your religion, it's cool to stand there and imagine what the crowd must have been like. You can actually climb up, but there are also stairs.

My wife and I were stoked to see this location. To the naked eye, it is just a bunch of rocks with a nice view. However, this is the exact location where Paul (from the Bible) preached to the people of Athens about the one true God. Paul knew the people of Athens were worshiping many gods and even worshiped...

Visit this hill for an amazing view of Athens. Watch out - very slippery! Nice for the selfie-lover.
