Amazing view of Athens, a lot of history who like it. I recommend to visit in the morning after 11am it's very very hot and it's too many people you need to find a space to take a picture and take the guide if you like history.
If you want to enjoy one of the best views of Athens, then this is the place to go. From this point you can enjoy 360° views of the city. Most importantly it offers a spectacular view of the Acropolis and if there is a musical event or performance taking place on the Acropolis you can hear it crystal clear from this point. The monument itself is actually not very impressive up close, but surprisingly looks great from the Acropolis! There are also some cool designs in the stone work of the paths on the way up, one looks like the triforce, so see if you can spot it 😄
Nice and quiet place in otherwise crowded Athens. You also have 360° view of the city and a different view for Acropolis as you are in similar height. Good to go there to recover between lunch and dinner.
Incredible views of Athens and The Acropolis. No entry fee and generally quite quiet. It’s not a strenuous walk and really worth the small amount of effort it takes to climb the hill. There’s plenty of smaller things to see on the way too.
It's situated in a really nice park with several other sites worth seeing! And it has one of the best views of the city and the Acropolis! Definitely worth going!
Beautiful 360 view of Athens and also Acropolis can be seen very well. Not too crowded and the walk up to the top isn't difficult at all. We also waited to see the sunset which was very nice and quiet.
Great place to take a morning hike and watch the sun rise over the Acropolis. I'm sure you could also catch an amazing shot or two of the sunset on the beach. The monument and history behind it are also interesting.
Worth the climb. The view over Acropolis is the best
Real countryside feel. Amazing views of the city.
Beautiful place and historical monument at the top of Philopappos hill. Pretty nice panoramic view of the Athens as well as the hill of Acropolis. Peaceful and quiet location, with beautiful nature, nice spot for relax and take photos of the area around.
The monument itself is not that interesting. But from the top of the hill the view is fantastic. Don't miss the pnyx nearby.
The monument itself does not worth the "climb" as it is pretty normal and you can not get near it. But the view of the whole is really amazing and makes the visit worth, also it is free.
At daylight you have a wonderfull 360 view over Athen and you can see the Akropolis. But we were there also in a group of 3 at night and we were attacked. A group of 5 guys tried to rob us until a group of men helped us to stop them. So watch out especially at night but we read afterwards that also at daylight people were robbed. Watch your personal stuff and yourself. Better go up in bigger groups.
We went up there at daylight and had a great view over athens and the Akropolis. But when we went up the hill in the evening 6 guys attacked us and tried to rob us. Afterwards we read in the Internet that this wasn't the first time something like this happens at this place. So watch your personal things and don't go up alone!
Has a lot of different green and it is very clean and quiet. Has an amazing view to Acropolis, all Athens, sea and nearest islands. Very romantic place to come here for observing a sunset with somebody special...
