Nice place. Worth seeing in the evening time when getting dark. Romantic place. Go here with water. Very high. No cheap cafes.

If one looks north from the top of Lycabettus, the valley of Attica today is a sea of cement buildings. But up until the beginning of the 20th century the sacred olive grove with over 150,000 trees shimmered silver-green in the bright Athenian sunlight. These...More

We visited mount Lycabettus a Sunday afternoon. The view is amazing! You can see the Parthenon, the acropolis museum, the Panathenaic stadium! It is also very romantic to see the sunset from there! Definitely worth a visit!

We chose to reach the funicular railway by walking through Kolonaki. Very nice route! The views are splendid and offer you a very good orientation to the city, as you can see the Acopolis, Olympieion (Temple of Olympian Zeus), Panathenaic Stadium, Lycabettus Theatre, Plaka and...More

Kolonaki / Lykavittos
By far the ritziest neighbourhood 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

There is a rail car in Kolonaki at the foot of Lykabettus mountain that will take you to the top. Also Taxis will take you there.

Depends on your preference. the bus 060 will take you very close at about a block. We prefer to walk a bit and see Greece and much prefer the Metro over the bus. If you prefer the Metro then blue line M3 get off at... More
