Amazing view
This is the highest spot of Athens and you can either go on foot or by the funicular train from Kolonaki. The most important thing about Lycabettus Hill is that it offers panoramic views of Athens. It can be seen from everywhere in Athens. The hill is a very popular tourist destination and once you reach the top there is the small whitewashed church of Saint George and a restaurant. There are cafeterias and bars, the perfect place to enjoy your coffee. There is no doubt that it is the ideal place for a romantic walk whereas if you get lucky and it is not very crowded it is very peaceful and magic. It has a theatre at the top where it has housed several Greek and international concerts as well as other cultural events.
