Why locals love it

Filopappou hill is the extension of the Acropolis hill. At the edge of it there is an abrupt cliff which is great for rock climbing. All the required gear is set on the rock by experts and when the weather allows it, it's full of climbers.

Why you should visit it

It is suitable for climbers of all levels. The is also a horizontal route close and parallel to the ground for the ones that need to practice without ropes. The view from this site is stunning. You can see all the mountains around Athens and also the port of Piraeus. If you are not a climbing fan, you can just grab a beer and enjoy the view.

Special tip

From metro stop Petralona go to "Dora Stratou Theater". Next to the parking lot of the theater there is an entrance. Follow the uphill.
