Worth the walk up and down, there are two ways you can go. Also have a look out for wild tortoises in the wooded areas. City views are amazing from the top.

I took a monorail which was a bit disappointment (no views, goes in the dark tunnel) so if you are not disabled I would recommend to take a walk instead and enjoy the stunning views! Good restaurant or two on the top and a beautiful orthodox chapel.

A truly unique and 360 degrees stunning view on Athens. It is the only place that will allow you to see the Acropolis from above. We reached it with a taxi from Monastiraki Metro area and only paid 8 euro. Obviously the best time to go is sunset. Only small downside, the place is understandably crowded, as it is quiet small, and everyone is taking pictures. Still worth it, I would go again.

Teleferik cable can take up and bring back down for 7.5€ per person. The view is worth every buck (cash only accepted)

On top you can find small Orthodox Church, restaurant and 360 view of Athens.

A great place to climb on foot. There are multiple winding paths through woods and wild flowers, with the occasional tortoise and kitten to entertain you along the way. Just keep heading uphill and you’ll be fine. The views along the way are absolutely stunning.
