Unless you are staying at a hotel which has amazing views of the Acropolis, then this is well worth a visit. It's just a quick walk up the hill round to another ancient monument (be sure to read all about it whilst up there) but...More

Easy walk up and down, took about an hour in total (with quite a while hanging around at the top looking at the view). There's a small ruin at the top, still has some carvings in it. Potentially a bit of bouldering near the top...More

Some great sights, but BEWARE OF THE STRAY DOGS!!! When I was visiting Filopappos Hill I was bitten by a stray dog, completely unprovoked. I was walking past a group of four-to-five stray dogs, and when I had almost passed them, one of them came...More

It's an easy walk up the hill but the views make you feel you have been on a big hike. It's great to see the sea and all the possibilities of the Greek Islands but as always it seems the parthenon is the star of...More

Filopappos hill (as well as muses hill and nymphs hill in same place) has the best view of Acropolis, especially when lighted at night time. Also quite tranquil place, nice panorama towards the sea, other places - 7 seets (that is quite interesting!), some tombs,...More

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.
