One of the most beautiful park-hills in the very center of athens full of junkies and pakistan-afghan-moroccan-algerian robbers that could stab you for 1$.

A nice hill with a couple of ancient things to see. Free to visit. Beautiful view of the acropolis, the city and the sea in the distance. Must see when you visit Athens.

Our guide had said that this was a great spot to view the sunset over the Acropolis and she was right. It is an easy stroll to the top of the hill, mostly on a paved path. The views of the Acropolis, Parthenon and Athens...More

Stunning views of the city, and a nice climb! We stopped at the Colina beside the Acropolis on the way, and both offer wonderful views, but Philopappos tends to be less crowded.

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

There is no parking beside the hill, the closest parking will be either the Acropolis parking or down beside the acropolis museum. You'd be best parking down on Mitropolis Street and walking up from there.
