DIONYSIOU AEROPAGITOU STREET
The pedestrian precinct of Dionysiou Areopagitou (honoring with its name the ancient personality) starts on Vasilissis Amalias Avenue across the HadrianĘs Arch and continues stretching to the entrance of the Acropolis archaeological site.
From there on, it is named Apostolou Pavlou (honoring the first person who preached Christianity to the Athenians) and slopes toward Ermou Street and Monastiraki.
When going up and coming down on these two streets one has a beautiful view of the Acropolis and the Parthenon. These streets, planted with olive trees to the left and right, practically separate Acropolis hill from the one of Philopappou, Pnyx and the hill of the Nymphs, passing by the Thisio area. This is the favorite zone of the Athenians for their night outings in the center of the city.
Combined with the exquisite view of the great ancient Greek architecture, the Modern Greek “stroll for coffee” enters into a different level…
HOT SPOTS - What we propose
Go up the hill of Philopappou to take the best "post-card" pictures with the view of the Acropolis.
