Athens‘ Acropolis hill is well-known around the world as the home of the iconic Parthenon, a very unique architectural gem. However, sitting on the Acropolis has one small downside: you don’t get to see it whole. Enter, stage northeast, Lycabettus Hill. Located sort of north of Syntagama Square, its base is surrounded by a residential area that is quite nice. The hill can be ascended on foot or via funicular.
At the top of the hill, sits the Chapel of St. George.
And then the best views of Athens and its surroundings from anywhere in the city as Lycabettus is the highest hill in the city. Well, don’t take my word, take a look for yourself!
