Also called the Hill of the Muses, Filopappou Hill - along with the Hills of the Pnyx and the Nymphs - was, according to Plutarch, where Theseus and the Amazons did battle. Inhabited from prehistoric times to the post-Byzantine era, today the pine-clad slopes are a relaxing place for a stroll. They offer excellent views of Attica and the Saronic Gulf, well-signed ruins and some of the very best vantage points for photographing the Acropolis.
To reach Filopappou Hill, just take the metro Line 2 from Metaxourgio station towards Elliniko for just 4 stops. Stop in ACROPOLIS metro station and walk for 15' towards Rovertou Gkali street or get a taxi from the hotel for 10-15'
For periods with high temperatures, it is highly recommended to have some water with you, a hat and sunglasses.
