Run The Planet is proud to introduce our new affiliate Run.com, the best running route resource on the web. If you are looking for a new Athens running route, or want to share your favorite Athens running routes with the rest of the word, Run.com is the place to be.
Have an unexpectedly perfect run, joined by butterflies and birds singing, right in the middle of the city: the Philopappus hill can be accessed by feet from Thision, or from Sindagma/Plaka (walk to the temple of Zeus, turn right into Dionisiou Aeropagou, along the Southern side of the Acropolis). Lots of paths on the hill, fantastic views overlooking Athens, the sea, Saronic Islands, and the Acropolis. Take a camera, and visit Aeropagus, St. Pauls speech - place etc. on the run!
