We visited in October during covid. It wasn't crowded and we were exploring. Great views and nice to chill and relax away from the crowds in the city. Worth it if you have time to kill.

Probably the most important route way in Greek antiquity, it led from the Dipylon Gate to the Parthenon, passing through the Ancient Agora. A procession along it was the first event of the Panathenaic Festival and it culminated at the Temple of Athena on the Acropolis. During the Festival chariot races also took place along it.

This roadway, the principal thoroughfare, runs from the Dipylon to the Parthenon, just about 1 KM. It was the processional way for Panathenaic festival parade. When you enter the Agora complex, you enter on the Panathenaic road and runs in front of the Stoa of Attalos

The Panathenaic Way starts at the Diplyon, which was the main gateway into Ancient Athens - to the north of the Ancient Agora, and ends at the Acropolis. You have to use your imagination when walking along it to picture in your minds eye the procession during the annual Panathenaia. festival, after which the Way is named, which ended at the Temple of Athena Nike (The Victorious), on the summit of the Acropolis. The Panathenaic Way is just over 1 kilometre in length and 'sensible' shoes and a bottle of water are recommended.

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