Philopappos Hill, Athens

(4.5/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web)
Philopappos Hill stands just southwest of the Acropolis and honors the memory of Philopappus, a Roman magistrate. Philopappus was a member of a wealthy and powerful family and was so well-liked that many people from powerful families mourned him. The two-story structure is adorned with sculptures that depict Philopappos in relief promenading and as a bust. Although only a portion of the memorial stands today, the entire monument was intact as late as the 15th century. You'll find the attraction perched on Mouseion Hill with gardens decorating the base.

  • There are not so many attractions to see on the way up the hill, but it is very climatic. You can enjoy great views along the way and read a book at the top of the hill.  more »
  • A quiet and lush Hill in the Centre of Athens, right next to the Acropolis, that need for walks, walking in the nature. It is not a busy place so it's relatively quiet hill.

  • This place is really a lot of local-they come to look at the city, the Acropolis, greenery, sit on the rocks. The climb is not very difficult if you are comfortable shoes.
