Philopappos Hill or the Hill of the Muses is a suitable opportunity for an escape in nature, just next to the bustling centre of Athens. It is one of the points of Athens that provide a magnificent view and is surrounded by the districts of Koukaki, Petralona and Acropolis and invites you to surrender to the calling of their wonderful view. It is connected to the hills of the Observatory and the Pnyx, while at its top there is the monument of Philopappos, from which came the name of the hill. It is worth mentioning that as part of the unification of the archaeological sites in 2002 an effort was made to fence the area, so that it could be visited according to a schedule and a ticket, something that was averted after the dynamic reaction of the active movement of the residents of the area.
