This is an ancient pedestrian road used by Ancient Greeks as parade route. A good walk to remind you how old Greeks paraded.

When you walk along the Panathenaic Way you're walking along the same path that many historians, scolars and philosophers walked. Peaceful and serene enjoy the time to look at fragments of ruins and think back to their day.

What this area must have looked like in it's prime. there are ruins of structures that are preserved along the way. It's nice to use some imagination as you take this route, and try to imagine what ancient athenians would have seen.

The Panathenaic way going in the Ancient Agora all the way up to the Acropolis is a road full of history and plenty of Athenians through the ages will have walked. It is easy to forget you are climbing when walking the Panathenaic way due...More

OK but not the most exciting part of the centre of Athens. I much preferred the parthenon, plaka, museums, etc.

It is surprising that this path up to the Acropolis is very deceptive. You hardly feel you are climbing - probably because of all,the sights being unveiled around you.

You do need to use your imagination as well as your knowledge of Greek history if you are going to get something out of this Road. It is part of the site of the Agora, so you will walk along it anyway. You will see...More

Great stroll through the birthplace of democracy. Get a real sense for everyday Athenian life - even if you have to use your imagination a bit.

Thissio / Makriyanni
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
numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely
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
