Lykavittós and Kolonáki

From Kolonáki Square, the hub of one of Athens' smartest shopping areas, the slopes of Lykavittós (Lykabettus) rise steeply to the 912-foot-high summit, one of the city's great vantage points. You can walk up or take the funicular to enjoy panoramic views over the city, from the Acropolis down to the sea at Piréas. Aim to get there for sunset, and leave time to visit the whitewashed chapel of Agios Giorgios (St. George) at the top.
