Petralona is one of the old, beautiful neighborhoods of Athens which have managed to maintain some of the historical character. It is one of the favorite districts of the Athenians, whop especially in the summer they choose it for the beautiful terraces, the green yards, the traditional taverns and the summer cinema with a view to the Acropolis. The walk to Petralona can be combined, especially in sunny Sundays, with a stroll to the hill of Philopappos, a landscape of unique natural beauty and testimony of the history of Athens.
