Follow our expert licensed guide through an entertaining walk to the most famous hills of Athens! Your walking route takes you through picturesque Anafiotika and its island-like alleys colored by lush bougainvillea flowers; feel like you ramble around the narrow paths of a Greek island surrounded by small houses with touches of white and blue everywhere.

Your first hill-stop will be on Mars Hill (or Areopagus) that will trigger your guide to unfold the tales that dress up the name of that place. Your tour will continue to enrapture every step you make towards your way to Pnyx, where the Athenian assembly was held during the antiquity, where democracy got its actual meaning. Aiming for the top of the Philopappou Hill, you will meet a cozy old church and the place where Socrates - the well-known philosopher - was said to be imprisoned. Reaching Philopappou hilltop you will get to see the Monument of Philopappos and soak up the boundless view to Acropolis, Piraeus and the Saronic Gulf.

Finish up your tour walking along the cobblestoned laneway of Dionysiou Areopagitou Street where you will get the chance to admire Acropolis from a different angle and take a look at the astonishing still-working Herodes Atticus Odeon.

A walk full of natural beauty and vantage points for the best photos before Athens magnificent views!
