The hill of Lycabettus is essentially one of the few green spots in Athens. The hill is covered with pine trees and crossed by paved paths. Located near the center of Athens, the hill is 304 meters high. In fact, it is the highest point of the Athenian basin and a great place to enjoy stunning views of the entire city, its suburbs and the sea surrounding Athens.
At the top of the hill, there is a small whitewashed church dedicated to Agios (Saint) Georgios, which can be seen from many parts of Athens. In addition to this church, Lycabettus Hill also has a restaurant that offers delicious meals. This place is ideal for romantic dinners with a view of the entire city as a backdrop. The Lycabettus Hill is also very popular when it comes to concerts.
On its slopes there is a semi-circular amphitheatre where Greek and foreign bands perform, especially in summer. The most recommended way to get there is by cable car, which departs from the Kolonaki neighborhood and takes about 30 minutes to reach the top. The paved road leading to the hill is rough and the ride can be exhausting.
