While the monument on top of this hill isn’t that interesting,the views on the Acropolis are perfect and make it worthwhile to climb up .

Nice walk to the entrance then a rocky uneven slippery trail to the summit where many people wait to take a photograph of the sunset. Take a torch if you intend to stay until dark.

Nice views on top of the hill if you walk up and can escape from the tourist crowds and the cruising people.

This is where Paul spoke! You have to visit this. Look up and you see the Acropolis. Look down and it's the Agora. Wow.

There is no parking beside the hill, the closest parking will be either the Acropolis parking or down beside the acropolis museum. You'd be best parking down on Mitropolis Street and walking up from there.
