You will get the perfect shots to the Parthenon and other Athens Spots without the massive amounts of people. Wear comfortable shoes as you will have to walk for a while on rough terrain. It is the only structure in the hill, so don't expect...More

If you want some great views of Athens, and the Acropolis, this is the place to go. It is an uphill walk, but I am a senior and did not have any problems. if you can do the Acropolis, you can do this. I loved...More

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.
