Attractions near the Philippos Hotel
A temple to honour victory
One of the most prominent temples on the ancient Acropolis, the Ionic Temple of Athena Nike was constructed around 425 BC, dedicated to the Goddess of victory and heroic endeavour, and patron of Athens.
Perfectly proportioned and much smaller than many of the other temples and buildings on the Acropolis, the delicate structure features four grand Ionic columns sitting on a bastion at the southeast edge of the sacred rock. What it lacks in size it makes up for in importance to the people of Athens, representing centuries of victory in battle.
Pack up a picnic and spend the day hiking, taking pictures and admiring the views from Filopappos Hill, positioned in the centre of Athens. A favourite leisure destination for Athenian locals on weekends, the hill offers awe-inspiring views over the city and a fresh perspective on the Acropolis from afar.
The whole family can enjoy the fairly short and easy hike to the top, where the ancient mausoleum of Philopappos Monument stands. Located just a short stroll from the hotel, get back to nature amongst the pine trees of Filopappos Hill, and enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
