The history of this site is amazing. If you are a Christian or interested in the Bible, be sure to see it, Acts 17 describes what happened here.

The Areopagus is simply a large rock outcropping located down the hill a bit from the Acropolis as one approaches Athens. However, to be there knowing the history is an absolutely spiritual and sentimental experience. This is the area where Paul brought the gospel to the Gentiles and where the altar to the "Unknown God" was located. There is no... More

The smaller and a bit tucked away Areopagus is a quite famous site for Christians who want to get a view of a part of Paul's journey. The view to the Acropolis puts things into a nice perspective though you must be careful walking around this area as it can be a bit slippery and not for those who might... More

The areopagus is a huge rock, just under the Acropolis. From there, you get a really nice of on the Acropolis and on the city of Athens. Be careful, the rocks a really slippery! The access to this atraction is free.

Not sure why this is a separate section on TripAdvisor, but it was okay. Nice view, but crowded with tourist. The ground is also slippery. We climbed down on the other side of the stairs and that was pretty. You walk into a cute Athens neighborhood and away from the crazy crowd.

Definitely not impressive in light of the Acropolis so close. But how can you walk around a rock about the size of a football field, knowing the apostle Paul was here and not rank it a 5? Yes, my ranking is an emotional one.

Didn't realize before how strategic the location is. The views of the Acropolis and the surroundings must have made it a place for a speaker to project his voice to a large audience.

The rocks here are very slippery; we saw two people slip and hurt wrists, knees etc. So wear grippy shoes. It is often hot so sandals etc may seem like a good idea, but only if they have some grip. We went at sunset and so did thousands of others. Was a good vibe, nice crowd, not many hassles or... More

The views from here are just amazing and when you factor in the historical significance it is a must visit. It doesn't cost a thing to climb which is an added bonus.
