“Amazing sunset”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2014

Don't miss Filopappos Hill if you are in the centre of Athens. Except from the monument and a beautiful view of the city of Athens, you will witness an amazing sunset if you get there at the correct time.

“Get to feal Athens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2014

Go there in the afternoon about an hour before sunset. The sun is posisioned behind you and it is the best time for a photograph of the Acropolis. As the Acropolis is lit up at night you might stay for taking shots of it illuminated.

“A green oasis in the center of a city full of concrete.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2014 via mobile

Near the entrance of Acropolis is the Filopappos Hill. It is free. It had a nice church Named Loubardiaris and many benches. Inside it is a small amphitheater named Dora Stratou with summer performances of folklore dancers.
Avoid it during nights.

“great views”

this was a beautiful hike up the hillside, very scenic, and reaching the top you get to see all around Athens. Great photo opportunities, with a nice monument there.
