    Lycabettus, from the highest hill ...

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: From the Lycabettus hill you can enjoy the fantastic view of Attica. The funicular brings you up to the top of the hill, or you can reach the hill by walking.The nice little chapel of St. George and the theatre in the north of the hill are very nice. At the top of the hill there are some cafes and restaurants.

    Athens by night..

    Lycabettus (Likavittos) Hill

    by amsterdam_vallon Written Dec 29, 2003

    Favorite thing: Lycabettus Hill is really a limestone rock reaching almost 1,000 feet into the once-crystalline Athenian sky. In the evening, the top half is floodlit, and from the Acropolis it looks something like a giant souffle. By day, it's a green-and-white hill toppoed by a tiny, flaringly white church, Agios Georgios.

    Fondest memory: The see the panorama of athens and of course the smog!!!

    Lycabbetus Hill

    by eladr Updated Jun 9, 2003

    Favorite thing: Lycabbetus hill is one of the great places to view Athens sky line.
    You can take or taxi or like me walk from Syntagma squre until reaching the funicular
    which brings you to the top of the hill.
    To reach the funicular you have to climb many stairs (unless you take a taxi), it's not easy but the view worth it!

    Favorite thing: visit the highest top of athens which is one my fondest memory of it. i am not going to forget how small athens look like when we look at from the top.

    Fondest memory: Lycabetous.There is a small church there on the top, and also a theater. we got there on foot from the city center.

    Favorite thing: LYKABETUS HILL
    It is the 2nd most famous hill in Athens, after the Acropolis. It means 'Mountain of Wolves' (Lycos means Wolf in Greek, though in internet means a different thing ;-))).
    You can walk to the top from Odos Aristipou or take a funicular from Odos Ploutarhou and enjoy a wonderful view of the Acropolis and the city from the terrace bar..
    There is a new (1964) built theatre behind the St. Gerorgios church. For info, see the section 'Festivals'.
