Introduction

Filopappou Hill offers eye-level views of the Acropolis from the top, as well as some welcome green space, along with the Hill of the Pnyx to the north. Just beyond, the sedate Thisio neighbourhood is cut through with two fine pedestrian routes, around which a pleasant cafe precinct flourishes. If you walk south to Petralona, you'll find even more low-key residential streets that makes a nice change from the more heavily touristed centre.
