Filoppapos Hill

At the height of 482 ft, this hill offers spectacular views of the Acropolis. If you want the best photograph of the Acropolis, this is your spot.

Atop the hill is the monument of Filopappos, raised by the Athenians between AD 114-116 in honor of Gaius Julius Philoppapus, a Roman consult, and dedicated philhellene. The memorial contained statues of the leader and his family. A frieze surrounding the monument depicts his arrival for his inauguration as Roman consul in 100 AD on a chariot.
