Philopappos Hill stands just southwest of the Acropolis and honors the memory of Philopappus, a Roman magistrate. Philopappus was a member of a wealthy and powerful family and was so well-liked that many people from powerful families mourned him. The two-story structure is adorned with sculptures that depict Philopappos in relief promenading and as a bust. Although only a portion of the memorial stands today, the entire monument was intact as late as the 15th century. You'll find the attraction perched on Mouseion Hill with gardens decorating the base.

Philopappos Hill reviews
Small hike, awesome views. Apparently quite dodgy at night so best avoid after sundown. In the daytime though it's perfect. Short hike from the other hill / east entrance to the Acropolis
You can get a very nice 360 view from this place!
