Taking the cable car to the top of Mount Lycabettus is a bit out of the way but worth it. We took the big bus to Banski Museum top and walked about 15 minutes to get to the cable car which leaves every 30 mins...More

Views are potentially great. 360 almost awesome. BUT the view of the Acropolis is obstructed by antennas. The rest of the view are houses and the Athenian landscape. Easily accessible. Another BUT- the way down is a gamble. Have a cab number just in case...More

Go there for a breathtaking view over Anthens. Best way to get there is by tube, then approx 10 min to the cable car station which will take you up on a hill.

Kolonaki / Lykavittos
By far the ritziest neighbourhood in town, Kolonaki is

stores. Here, the wealthy say no to austerity by
dressing in their finest and spending hours in the
trendy cafés around Kolonaki Square, sipping the most
expensive coffee in Europe. The area also contains a

which add to the air of nobility. The leafy upper
