Monastiraki Square to Philappou Hill (Dora Stratou theatre)

Can anyone tell me how far of a walk it is from Monostiraki Square to:

a) entrance to the Acropolis

b) Philappapou Hill and the Dora Stratou Greek Dances Theatre

Although it looks like a short distance on the map, because of the cliffs and hills, it may be that one has to walk all the way around. If so, going to Dora Stratou may be a short cab ride??

Thanks for any info.

-Monastiraki sq to Acropolis entrance should be 5-10 mins

-From Monastiraki to Thission and then around Filopapou hill to reach the thatre should be about 20 mins walking.

-From Acropolis entrance to Dora Stratou theater through Filopappou hill it should be ~10 mins

We got the metro from Monostiraki Square to the metro which is near the Acroplis we stayed in the Philappou area it was great it is a bit steep getting up to the Acroplis but it was worth it i always wanted to go to Athens so in early March that is just what we did it was brillant i have such fond memories
