“The national garden of Athens is the ultimate escape from the city within the city. Ideal for a calm walk in nature, a picnic lunch and a good rest. ”

“Also called the Hill of the Muses, Filopappou Hill – along with the hills of the Pnyx and the Nymphs – is a somewhat wild, pine-shaded spot that's good for a stroll, especially at sunset. The hill also gives some of the best vantage points for photographing the Acropolis, and views to the Saronic Gulf.The hill is identifiable by the Monument of Filopappos crowning its summit; it was built between AD 114 and 116 in honour of Julius Antiochus Filopappos, a prominent Roman consul and administrator. The marble-paved path, laid out in the 1950s by modernist architect Dimitris Pikionis, starts near the periptero (kiosk) on Dionysiou Areopagitou. After 250m, it passes the excellent Church of Agios Dimitrios Loumbardiaris, which contains fine frescoes. There's a detour to Socrates' prison, and the main path leads to the Shrine of the Muses, cut into the rock face just below the top of the hill. Inhabited from prehistoric times to the post-Byzantine era, the area was, according to Plutarch, the area where Theseus and the Amazons did battle. In the 4th and 5th centuries BC, defensive fortifications – such as the Themistoclean wall and the Diateichisma – extended over the hill, and some of their remains are still visible.”

“The site was uncovered in 1861 during the construction of Pireos St; it once sat on the clay-rich banks of the Iridanos River. There's an excellent small museum here. Once inside, head for the small knoll ahead to the right, where you'll find a plan of the site. A path leads down to the right from the knoll to the remains of the city wall built by Themistocles in 479 BC, and rebuilt by Konon in 394 BC. The wall is broken by the foundations of two gates; tiny signs mark each one. The first, the Sacred Gate, was where pilgrims from Eleusis entered the city during the annual Eleusian procession. The gate marked the end of the Sacred Way, aka Iera Odos, which is now a wide city street that still follows a straight route west to Elefsina. To the northeast are the remains of the Dipylon Gate – the city's main entrance and where the Panathenaic Procession began. It was also where the city's prostitutes gathered to offer their services to travellers. From a platform outside the Dipylon Gate, Pericles gave his famous speech extolling the virtues of Athens and honouring those who died in the first year of the Peloponnesian Wars. Between the Sacred and Dipylon Gates are the foundations of the Pompeion, used as a dressing room for participants in the Panathenaic Procession. Leading off the Sacred Way to the left as you head away from the city is the Street of Tombs. This avenue was reserved for the graves of Athens' elite, while ordinary citizens were buried in surrounding areas. The surviving stelae are now in the site museum or the National Archaeological Museum, so what you see are mostly replicas. The astonishing array of funerary monuments and their bas-reliefs warrant close examination. One well-preserved stela (up the stone steps on the northern side) shows a little girl with her pet dog. The site’s largest stela is of sisters Demetria and Pamphile. A lot of cafes, clubs, bars & restaurants are here . Technopolis where cultural events are taking place all over the year, is here ! ”

“The Archaeological Museum of Kerameikos is located in the archaeological site of the ancient cemetery with the same name. At the first area and the atrium they host works of sculpture from all periods of antiquity, while at the other three halls there are pottery exhibits and other findings that come mainly from the necropolis of Kerameikos.”

“After lunch, walk around Lofos Strefi – the neighbourhood’s famous hill. A climb up the graffiti covered concrete steps and verdant fields to the top yields beautiful results: the view of surrounding Athens is rivalled only by the imposing and more touristy Lycabettus, which sits just behind Strefi. The hill is fairly unkempt, making parts of the terrain less stable than others, so make sure to take care when climbing down.”

“This park was created in 1908 in the Pagrati neighborhood, when locals planted a large section of land with pine trees. In 1936 the area was allocated to the Municipality of Athens, which continued planting the area with a wide variety of trees, bushes and other types of Mediterranean flora. The park was once home to a small zoo and a theatre with free performances. Today, the municipality is in charge of the park’s myriad recreational activities. Park entrances are located on Eftyxidou Street and at the junction of Eftyxidou and Spyrou Merkouri Streets.”

“Organised city beaches line the Athens Riviera south of the city. If you want to escape the city entirely, keep heading south to Cape Sounio where you can spend the day basking in the crystal clear waters of the many secluded coves, before making the pilgrimage up to the Temple of Poseidon at sunset that is dedicated to the mythological God of the Sea. To experience the very best of the Aegean, let the others do the hard work and relax on board a catamaran that will take you to the best swimming spots where you’ll feel like you’re back in the islands. After you’ve splashed around, an authentic Greek lunch will be waiting on board.”
