“Picnic Athens” started as an idea between friends who enjoy picnicking. Our other activity as distributers of Greek organic and traditional food, created the idea of a very special service that will arrange for you a gourmet picnic at the world’s most beautiful place, Philopappou Hill in the historical center of Athens!
It is the common name of the Hill of the Muses. Paved walks through the pine trees lead you all the way to the top of the hill where you will admire the monument to Gaius Julius and the breathtaking view to the city, as well as the Acropolis, almost at eye-level with the monument. We offer you firstly a nice walk to the most famous pedestrian areas of the world Dionysiou Aeropagitou. The pedestrian precinct of Dionysiou Areopagitou starts on Vasilissis Amalias Avenue across the Hadrian’s Arch and continues stretching to the entrance of the Acropolis archaeological site.
From there on, it is named Apostolou Pavlou (honoring the first person who preached Christianity to the Athenians) and slopes toward Ermou Street and Monastiraki. When going up and coming down on these two streets one has a beautiful view of the Acropolis and the Parthenon. These streets, planted with olive trees to the left and right, practically separate Acropolis hill from the one of Philopappou, Pnyx and the hill of the Nymphs, passing by the Thisio area. This is the favorite zone of the Athenians for their night outings in the center of the city.
“Picnic Athens“ simplifies the process of planning and arranging a picnic. Just select your date and time and allow us to provide you with a delicious, unique and convenient experience.
