All reviews rocky hill nice walk official meeting main path ancient athenians historic place century bc ancient athens acropolis museum democracy citizens birthplace podium democratic platform climb site
Well worth the climb up the hill. The structure has been well preserved and is rather special. It overlooks the whole of Athens and the views are tremendous. Great photo opportunities of the Acropolis from yet another angle and perspective.
Very little is left of what the cradle of democracy once was.
Some rmains of the fortress walls protecteing the city are stille visible and one part is even impressive.

Just opposite the acropolis try and visit this area too. It is very spread out but the interesting area is not too far from the entrance. The Pnyx is where democracy began centuries ago. Amazing views if the acropolis.
Speakers corner in ancient Athens,,,The most well known point if someone wanted to speak about everything,,,,Periklis,Saint Paul and many others stood there...leaving behind of them History during milleniums.
Sprawling site with decent archaeological remains. Good signage along with historical background. Few tourists made for a most peaceful visit. Views looking across to the Acropolis are wonderful. Sunset is spectacular. Note, it can get windy atop the hill.
Very good guide, passionate about Athens and Greek history who clearly enjoys passing on his fantastic knowledge.

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
up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centerpiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
