Lycabettus Hill towers over Athens. At the summit, you are 910 ft above the city.
To enjoy the observation decks on the summit, you have two choices: a moderate 45-minute walk or a funicular.
Crowning the summit is the typical whitewashed chapel that crowns many a hill in Greece. This one is the chapel of Agios Georgios. It is dedicated to Profitis Illias(The Prophet Elijah).
On the eve of Easter Sunday is a candlelit procession that winds down the peak’s wooden slopes.
The summit is popular with Athenians and some tourists. There are several cafes and a pleasant restaurant.
