We made our way up Filopappos late one afternoon. It is an easy walk up from the north western side of the acropolis, probably 15 minutes. We made our way up from the area where the buses stop to drop off for the Acropolis.There was only one other lot of people on the top of the hill, so we just about had the place to ourselves. Did see a number of dogs wandering around, but no trouble.Nice monument at the top, but it was the views that we loved. You got a great view of the Acropolis, especially the Parthenon. You can also get views over the city to the sea as well. It seems that very few people make the effort, but YOU should.
