Around Athens and the Acropolis one can enjoy a walk on its hills and admire the view from there.
The hill of Lycabettus to the north of the Acropolis offers an opportunity for walking and relaxing while enjoying the view. At the top is the small church of Agios Georgios, while access is also possible by cable car. Northwest of the Acropolis is the Areio Pagos hill, where in ancient times the Areios Pagos and the Parliament were located. From there the Apostle Paul spoke to the Athenians about Christianity in 51 AD. There is also the National Observatory where one can look and enjoy the sky. Finally, right next to it is the hill of Pnyka, the landmark of the Athenian Republic, since it was there that the Church of the Municipality met for all matters.
