We stayed at a hotel close to,this pedestrian only street and loved being there. Great sightseeing, view of,the Acropolis, the Acropolis Museum is here, and only a short walk to,the Placa!

What this area must have looked like in it's prime. there are ruins of structures that are preserved along the way. It's nice to use some imagination as you take this route, and try to imagine what ancient athenians would have seen.

The Panathenaic way going in the Ancient Agora all the way up to the Acropolis is a road full of history and plenty of Athenians through the ages will have walked. It is easy to forget you are climbing when walking the Panathenaic way due...More

OK but not the most exciting part of the centre of Athens. I much preferred the parthenon, plaka, museums, etc.

It is surprising that this path up to the Acropolis is very deceptive. You hardly feel you are climbing - probably because of all,the sights being unveiled around you.

You do need to use your imagination as well as your knowledge of Greek history if you are going to get something out of this Road. It is part of the site of the Agora, so you will walk along it anyway. You will see...More

Great stroll through the birthplace of democracy. Get a real sense for everyday Athenian life - even if you have to use your imagination a bit.

Historic=yes..Interesting=not really. You might as well walk it to get from one attraction to the next. Footsteps of history.

There is no map of the entire site they give you as they have a shortage and they tell you to take a picture of the map. You could easily miss gems of information if you domt have a data plan on your phone. Loose...More

Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient
temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small
wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer
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
with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the
