When you walk along the Panathenaic Way you're walking along the same path that many historians, scolars and philosophers walked. Peaceful and serene enjoy the time to look at fragments of ruins and think back to their day.

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.

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.

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
