Aeropagos : Michelin's recommendations

On this hill camped the Amazons, the enemies of Theseus, who consecrated the place to Ares, god of war. According to another legend, Orestes, who murdered his mother, was judged here. Before these open-air assizes the courtesan Phryne was accused of impiety and then acquitted. It is also supposed to have been here that Saint Paul converted Dionysos, the future Saint Denis Areopagitos, the 1st bishop of Athens. Lovely views of the Acropolis and over the Greek and Roman agoras.
