This is a small little church in front of the hill where the Acropolis is . This church is a typical Greek place even the colours make it special . A must visit when you walk up the hill past it .

Great little temple on the pedestrian zone of Dionysiou Aeropagitou, under the Acropolis. St. Sophia's church is part of the Meropion Institution for helping elderly women. The church itself has a nice backyard were it can host christening ceremonies etc. Definitely should visit.

numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely
pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between
the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth
climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges
