“Great for a mountain bike ride, but walk is also nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Have been there for a nice walk couple of times, you'll have a great panoramic view to Athens - the best time to go in the summer is close to sunset, not too hot and you'll have a nice breeze from the mountain.

“Amazing mountain to explore on a bicycle..., don't miss it !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Hymettus is the best mountain for a bicycle ride that none should miss if he visits Athens. If you didn't bring your bike with you, ask Athensbybike.com for a rental. Through Kesariani which is one of the most interesting neighborhoods of Athens, you can start exploring this beautiful mountain on which you could find even the ruins of an ancient temple and some Byzantine churches.
There are many places that you could stop and regain your strength, like the Kalopoula's kiosk where you could also taste some traditional Greek food.
The ride is quite difficult but the view of the city will 100% remunerate your sweat.
