Lycabettus Hill, Athens Overview

Athens' Mount Lycabettus is a well-known limestone hill that provides a 360-degree panorama of the city. It is encircled by pine trees and has a theatre, a restaurant, and a Chapel of St. George at its foot, among other well-known attractions. A cable car to the top of the hill is another popular highlight.

Apart from being the highest point in Athens, located at a height of 277 meters, it offers the tourists a gala time with other equally beautiful attractions situated on the hill itself. The journey starts from Lycabettus Funicular. St. George's church provides a broad perspective of the surrounding region because it was constructed on top of Lycabettus hill. Two chapels, one to the prophet Elijah and the other to St. Constantine, are noteworthy. The restaurant Orizontes, which is situated at the top of Lycabettus Hill, offers one of Athens' best views. The place looks majestic all the time; however, the sunset view from the top, while experiencing the whole of the city at one glance, is a treat to behold.
