Lots of major and minor trails, plenty of signs to explain some of the early settlements. I particularly liked the abandoned early suburb to the west, running up the ruts in the old stone road.

Doesn't take long to walk up to the summit of this hill. Whilst the monument at the top is not spectacular, you get amazing views overlooking the Acropolis.

This is not one of the major attractions in Athens but if you have some extra time go there. The view is beautiful and the walk in the park is very enjoyable.

Amazing view of Athena from this hill near Acropolis. Panoramic view and very fresh air. Only 20 min walk from Acropolis.

We did this hike with kids (age 8,10, 17) and it was very doable. The views at the top were fantastic.

Very safe area. If you are into photography this is the place to get best pics of the Acropolis. We got great pics with it all lit up:)

This is a place in Athens where you can walk and breath clean air. There are nice trails and great views. The Philopappos monument is also neat. In addition, the area isn't heavily packed with tourists, so it is clam and refreshing.

You can wander up Philopappos Hill after a visit to the Acropolis - it's just off to the south west of its slopes. Philopappos Hill is one of the 7 hills of Athens and it's an open site with a clearly marked path leading first to 'Socrates' Prison' and the Philopappos Monument on top of the hill itself (if you've...
