New York has the Empire State Building and Paris has the Eiffel Tower, where you can enjoy a view above the city. Well, Athens has Lycabettus with 3 major differences. It is natural, it stands higher and it is free of charge! At 277 meters (908 feet) above sea level, the hill is the highest point in the city that surround it and offers a great panoramic view, especially during the night.
At the top of Lycabettus hill, there are the Chapel of St. George from the 19th century, a large open-air theatre, which has housed many Greek and International concerts, a cafe and a restaurant. If you like we can wait for you, for 30-40 minutes, to finish your walk around and bring you back at no extra charge.
Do it yourself
The hill can also be reached by taxi or by bus and then ascended by the Lycabettus Funicular railway which climbs the hill from a lower terminus at Kolonaki. The railway station can be found at Aristippou Street.
