Im not really a church person so only popped my head around the door as my wife had gone in to light a candle, very small but spectacular views from outside, where there are also a couple of "tat" vendors.

You have to walk up the stairs... But it is worth it to see Athens from above. Really nice view and the small church is very nice

We had a leisurely walk up through the park and actually stopped half way for a bit of lunch ! Not too hard a walk or you can catch a Taxi to near the top or the cable car/funicular to the Restaurant nearby.
