Even later at night, this area was busy with locals and tourists alike. The sights from these rocky outcrops provide an amazing look down at the city below an the Acropolis nearby. The garbage cans are not frequently entered so beware of blowing litter.

The Areopagus, or Mars Hill, is a location of historical, biblical, and aesthetic significance. The footing is rather treacherous, so the metal staircase is highly recommended.
