We stayed half way up Lycabettus Mountain at a boutique Hotel. It was a beautiful view seeing across the city to the Acropolis and Parthenon.

We went up for sunset and it didn't disappoint. We took an uber most of the way since it was getting late and our feet were tired. There's a nice looking restaurant up there. We didn't stop at it but good for a beer. It's...More

Stunning views over Athens, we took the funicular, wheel chair access was limited and we carried the wheel chair up, using crutches to get up the stairs. There is a nice restaurant at the top.

We went to this gorgeous site on Saturday morning. The hilltop and view of the city was excellent, but on Saturday mornings the church is often used for baptisms so we didn't get to go up to it. We're planning another trio while in Athens...More

A very steep climb, or can catch the short rail. Views at the top are fabulous, with a small church on the top and a few restaurants (which looked unappealing). 20 minutes at the top was enough. Wouldn't bother again but if you like views...More

Climbed on a night time for about 20 minutes up. Amazing view. You can see the entire Athens well lit at night. The breeze is just so amazing.

Kolonaki / Lykavittos
By far the ritziest neighbourhood in town, Kolonaki is

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.
