Lycabettos

Highly recommended
The Lycabettus, or Wolves' Hill, 278 m high, is crowned by Saint George's Chapel. From the neighbouring terraces, a wonderful panorama embraces the city of Athens, the Acropolis, and the Piraeus coast, together with the main surrounding peaks: Hymetus, Pentelikos, dotted with marble quarries, and the massive silhouette of Parnis.
