Standing 277 meters above sea level, Lycabettus Hill (sometimes spelt Lykavitos) is the highest point of Athens. Although it is a beautiful walk up via a circular path it might be a test of endurance and a challenge in summer. Luckily, a cliff railway can take you to the top of the hill and proves to be a novelty for younger kids and seniors. Unluckily there is no view on the way up or down because it moves inside a closed tunnel. The view from Lycabettus Hill is breathtaking because you can have a 360 degree panorama of Athens. During sunset the view is out of this world whilst waiting for the sun to set and the lights of the Acropolis, Temple of Olympian Zeus, Panathenaic Stadium and Ancient Agora to come on. At the top of the hill you will find the Greek whitewashed chapel of Agios Georgios (St. George) and a restaurant which is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
