Full description
Follow your expert licensed guide on an entertaining walk to the most famous hills of Athens. Your walking route will take you through picturesque Anafiotika and its island like alleys colored by lush bougainvillea flowers. Feel like you are rambling 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) where your guide will explain the fascinating history of the stony outcrop. Your tour will continue towards Pnyx, where the Athenian assembly was held during antiquity, where democracy got its actual meaning. Aiming for the top of the Philopappou Hill, you will meet a Byzantine church and the place where Socrates was said to have been 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 lane of Dionysiou Areopagitou Street, where you will get the chance to admire the 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 of magnificent views of Athens.
