This hill is great for views of Athens. It's lovely throughout the day but especially during a sunset. I would recommend going up to the top of the hill. The hill is just down from the Acropolis so it's worth the extra few minutes to climb up and see the views.
Areopagus is the place where Paul the Apostle addressed the Athenians about their worship about The Unknown God. Once at the top it is easy to imagine Paul talking to the masses, a very important part of the history of Athens.
Areopagus is one of those places which is strongly connected to modern civilization. This is the place where the elders of ancient Athens gathered. You can visit this place while walking up the Acropolis hill - it has some magnificent views of the city and the Athena temple, as well as other significant locations. Sit for a while and think... 更多

We did a 12 hour tour of the Apostle Paul. The tour took us through the Areopagus, the original stairs are just historic to walk on. The view and understanding of the pecking order where the elite would talk and or preach is so visible. The Olive trees still give a great park like setting.
The Areopagus is an absolute must if you are visiting the Acroplolis. It lies in your path if you approach from Monastiraki or either the Roman or Ancient Agora. it offers amazing views of the Acropolis towering above it and the city of Athens below. It is the spot where St. Paul supposedly delivered his famous speech to the Athenians... 更多
This is one of the sacred rocks of Ancient Athens and the place where the Supreme Court was situated. It's a perfect spot to a 360 degrees view of Athens, with a very close distance to the Acropolis. A favorite place to the Atheneans and the visitors of the city as well. You just have to be careful of the... 更多
An interesting site; it's said that the Apostle Paul delivered a famous speech from here; it is also associated with other government and religious figures. A very short walk from the Acropolis / Parthenon; very much worth it. I would be careful with children, elderly or infirm; there are steps to walk up and the rock itself might be slippery... 更多
