We took the tram to the top which travels through a tunnel so you do not see anything. But when you walk out of the top station, the view takes your breath away. Magnificent.

Be sure to go to the top of Mount Lycabettus and watch the sun set on the greek capital. It is beautiful.

Kolonaki / Lykavittos

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.
