About the tour

As all great ancient cities, Athens was built around seven hills. These hills have seen over five millennia of human advances and history in which is probably one of the most influential human settlements in History. This visit focuses on exploring three of these seven hills: the hill of Pnyx (where the ancient Athenians tested direct citizen-based democracy), the hill of Nymphs (home to ancient sanctuaries and the National Obvservatory) and the hill of Philopappou (the resting place of the exiled Prince Gaius Julius Antiochus Philopappos of Commagene).

From the hills of Athens, visitors will learn more about the ancient and the modern history of Athens and its inhabitants, and they will also enjoy a privileged panoramic view of the Acropolis and the skyline of the city.
