We went not particularly to see the church, but rather to have lunch and take in the panoramic view at the top of the hill. Indeed it was beautiful like all greek orthodox churches. It is rather small but its probably not meant to serve...More

Learned about this little gem from taxi driver. There are 3 restaurants at the top of this mountain just below the chapel. The best things are the view, breeze and no hoards of people. This monastery is a delightful part of your ATHENS itinerary. We...More

The Chapel of Saint George is located at the top of the highest hill in Athens - Mount Lycabettus! If your visiting Mount Lycabettus to take in the famous view of Athens it is definitely worth a quick look inside this tiny whitewashed church

Worth the visit but only if you have the time. Other than the chapel and a restaurant, there isn’t much up there. No doubt the view of Athens is great from up there, the similar 360 view of Athens city can also be seen from...More

Kolonaki / Lykavittos
By far the ritziest neighborhood in town, Kolonaki is
home to most of the chic boutiques and designer label
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
couple of notable museums and cultural institutions,
which add to the air of nobility. The leafy upper
