The best sunset view over Athens. Avoid the restaurant though, it's overpriced and nothing extraordinary.

Small church atop Lycabettus Hill dating back to the late 19th century. Hours are sporadic, however, even if you do not have an opportunity to peek inside, the views across Athens make a visit here worthwhile. There is a small restaurant adjacent to the church....More

The chapel is small but intensely decorated. There is no seating although I did notice some folding chairs. There is a separate bell tower which you can see when you look up at Lycabettus Hill. There may be services.

We had a leisurely walk up through the park and actually stopped half way for a bit of lunch ! Not too hard a walk or you can catch a Taxi to near the top or the cable car/funicular to the Restaurant nearby.
