Lykavittos Hill in Greece is a lovely vantage point a top Athens to gaze at the city from. The green and lovely hill is very popular with the locals and is slowly gaining popularity with the tourists as well, thanks to the amazing panoramic views of the ancient city.
The hill rises like a giant within the concrete jungle that is modern day Athens. The adventure seekers should certainly take a hike up the hill. It makes sense to plan a picnic and enjoy the views from this wonderful Birdseye view that the city naturally provides.

You'll get tired because of the hill altitude is too high. Also there should be railing or staircase to be more secure for child. And the prices are expensive so you will bring your drink together. But it worth a look 277 meters from above to Athens. I would definitely recommend to see a very nice feeling
Lovely walk up to the summit. It's all paved with quite a few steps along the way. It's quite easy walking - we did it in under 30 minutes, but there's quite a climb from the town before you actually reach the start. Beautiful little church at the top and a restaurant. For those not keen on walking there's also a funicular (lift) which will zoom you up to the top. Well worth a visit.
Great walk with beautiful views and plants. And way less crowded than Acropolis.
Such a must see for vistas and a little hike, breathtaking sunsets and sunrises, with a quaint church atop and perfect open air restaurant. You will also find a few chilled drinks sellers on the top plateaux.
A little disappointed by this attraction in Athens... So there is a funicular to go up to the hill but it's only not to get tired, as you don't see the city from funicular. As for me, I went up to Lycabette by walking, since the path is very good (but be careful: it's only stairs and it's a little steep) It was in the evening and, once at the top, could see nothing because it was crowded! So, I would recommend to go there on the morning or the afternoon to enjoy the view. I then enjoyed the view when going down. It's a really good spot to realize how huge is the city.
