Location: Athen, Philopappos Hügel (147 m)      by: Müller Björn
Area: Greece      Date: 06.06.2017
There is no hill (at least no one I found) in Athens providing both a perfect view onto the Akropolis and a full panomaric view over the city. - The Philopappos hill at least is some compromise: only little parts of the Akropolis are hidden by trees, and the only panorama "blocker" is the Philopappos monument itself on top of the hill (which I left out in the panorama, you still see some fences of the monument on the left and on the right).

Esp. in the sunrise/sunset moments, Athens has some special character: an ocean of houses, houses, houses interrupted by some few hills and surrounded by mountains and the sea.

I was there. It is a great panoramic point. But I did have a strange effect on me. On the one hand the Parthenon, on the other, is an exaggerated expanse of buildings. Too much contrast.
The pano is beautiful and interesting.
