  • The climb to the hill is a bit steep I recommend comfortable shoes in the first section is on the right the caves that constitute the prison of Socrates... Continuing the ascent you will cross the mosaic steps, all different up to the top where the monument is located and a spectacular view of the city and the Acropolis. The sunset is definitely from film to me better than by Lyabetto.

  • Had a good walk in the park, provided very good views to the Acropolis. However, I read later that this might be a hot spot for robberies because it is quite isolated within the park and I didn't see many people at about 1pm on a Wednesday end of March (not tourist season yet). So, better be safe than sorry and be careful.
  • There two hills in this city. It is the one that i prefer. It is lower then the other one, however, it is closer to the acropolis and you can take a 360 view here. Amazing. The other hill does not have this 360 view, but they have a restaurant. This place is also easier to reach. I believe that this place is a good spot to see the sunset or sunrise. I wish i had the time to watch it :(
