The Lykavettos (Λυκαβηττός; also Lykabettos or Likavittos transliterated) is the city mountain of Athens. With its height of 277 m it is the highest collection in the city centre and offers thereby a singular prospect on the objects of interest of Athens. With good visibilities the whole region can be grasped Athens and its boiler situation between mountain courses and the Ägäis in the south from here from.
Two possibilities are offered of erklimmen the summit: On the one hand the travel with the rack railway, whose station is in the Aristippou road, which one discovers, if one follows the rising Ploutarhou road. Very many be worth-more worth, although more arduously, the footpath is to the summit. The stairs by the forest are an oasis of the peace in the comparison to being noisy urban driving minutes before. Already the ascent offers fantastic lookout points on the Akropolis and the olympia stadium of 1896.
The summit offers AG beside the small chapel. Georgios a restaurant with unique situation and elevated prices. The possible Rundumblick, which particularly offers at night, but to the sunset a romantic atmosphere, should be the highlight of each Athens tourist, particularly since the Lykavettos overflowed not in such a way from tourists like other objects of interest.
