"Marvelous Views!" Lycabettus Hill Tip by viddra

Lycabettus Hill, Athens: 59 reviews and 119 photos

 
 

This is the highest hill of Athens which offers you a marvelous view over the city and the whole Attica. And, if the weather's nice, you might even see Corinth and nearby islands of the Gulf of Saronikos.

The hill's topped with a beautiful small church of St George from 1780. Its bells can be heard only once a year.

On the other side of the hill, there's an open-air theatre.
