Philopappos Hill, Athens

(900+ reviews on the web)
Historic Walking Area
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.

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