We climbed this hill earlier on in the morning and it was still rather hot, but it was worth every bit of the effort. When we reached the top, we realized that there was a cable car we could have taken up. We took it...More
We walked up Mount Lycabettus from the main shopping area in Kolonaki around 3-4pm. Was pretty warm as there's not much shade once you start the zig zag path up the mountain. It took us 20-30mins to get to the top. If heat and sweat...More
We went just before sunset and saw the Acropolis in lights. Festive atmosphere. Gentleman selling canned drinks by the chapel. Beautiful small church was open. Sad to notice ceiling damage. Restaurant at the top. We took the teleferic (cable car) to the top and back...More
A fantastic place for sunset with amazing views of the city. Simply incredible
We went by metro and walked to the funicular. The most long 800 meters from our life.
I strongly recommend to take a taxi to the funicular, especially if you go with...More
Moderately steep walk, but the views along the way and at the top are breathtaking. We started from Syntagma Square at around 10:00 and took a route along Voukourestiou and Likavittou. The path started with steps into the woods at the intersection of Itis and...More

The view from Mount Lycabettus is spectacular. The fact that it's so high allows you to see the whole city, even the Acropolis hill which is an unforgettable experience. I visited Mount Lycabettus by funicular but there is also an option to walk there on...More
By far the ritziest neighborhood in town, Kolonaki is home to most of the chic boutiques and designer label stores. Here, the wealthy say no to austerity by dressing in their finest and spending hours in the trendy cafés around Kolonaki Square, sipping the most expensive coffee in Europe. The area also contains a couple of notable museums and cultural institutions, which add to the air of nobility. The leafy upper
reaches of Kolonaki transition into Lykavittos Hill, the highest point in central Athens. Climb the paths through its wooded slopes to the tiny chapel at the top, from where you are rewarded with stunning views across the Acropolis to the sea and even the mountains of the Peloponnese on a clear day. The wooden amphitheater up here hosts regular concerts during the summer.
There are no barrier at the begining, there are different ways to go up, in the upper last part from the taxi stop or park area there are steps and barrier. Before that there are a mix of all kindsome steps with barriers... More
There are no barrier at the begining, there are different ways to go up, in the upper last part from the taxi stop or park area there are steps and barrier. Before that there are a mix of all kindsome steps with barriers, steps with no barriers, and no steps no barriers. I walked down by night and I didn’t remember it dangerous...
