  • It has a beautiful view but can pass if you don't want to beat up a steep little Hill. The view is beautiful but the top of the Acropolis overcomes. Therefore, can pass beat.

  • Really interesting. Strange to see the lack of care originally and how the city is trying to recover the area. 
  • Went here after Acropolis and good views and interesting history. Not much to do except look around at the views and read a few plaques. 
  • If you want to take a rest after Acropolis or just you found it too expensive to visit Acropolis also nice views over the city or Acropolis and all for free :) Take care when walking there also bit dirty but nice tho
  • Historical place.In pre-classical times (before the 5th century BC), the Areopagus was the council of elders of the city, similar to the Roman Senate. Magnificent view. Don't miss it.
  • Superb view of Athens though not as good as the one from Lycabetus Hill. Be aware of high temperature during june-august inclusive.
  • Decent city views of Athens from atop the hill as well as some views of the Acropolis. However, what gave this site 5-stars was the original steps up the hill since antiquity (at least according to our guide). It gets quite slippery nearing the top so just be careful.
  • Magical place. Amazing both by day and night. Great view of the whole city and of the surrounding hills, including of course the Acropolis.
