Acropolis and Parthenon view from Lycabettus

Lycabettus hill

Lycabettus hill is a tourist trap with a good reason for it since it offers according to many, the best panoramic view to Athens city.
It is the highest point in town, 277 meters and from its top you will have the chance to view the vast urban sprawl and some of the most interesting spots in Athens, like Acropolis and Parthenon, the Greek Parliament, Panathinaiko stadium and many other. You better take with you binoculars or a long range lens in order to have a close look to coastal Athens and the Saronic gulf (even Aigina island on a clear weather) or the more mountainous areas of the north suburbs under Penteli and Parnitha mountains.

Access to Lycabettus hill

You may reach Lycabettus hill with three different ways. By car which you can leave at the large parking site next the open Lycabettus theater, by foot from the peripheral Kolonaki road and then by following the large half-pace all the way to the top (this can be very tiring during hot summer days or even nights), or by taking the cable-car from Kolonaki district again at the end of Aristippou street.
