See the best of Athens with a guide, who takes care of navigation and logistics, on this guided tour. Go past city highlights such as the Keramikos Cemetery, Roman Forum, and Ancient Agora, among other ancient monuments. Pedal along bike-friendly paths and streets and cover more ground than if walking, learning the city's rich history as you go.

There are a number of marvellous aspects to atop Mount Lycabettus and this Chapel is one. Seeing it on a Sunday afternoon framed against the deep azure of the sky, we though it looked its best. Stepping to the interior is to admire a proliferation of frescoes and icons. All silver St. George on his horse slaying the dragon is dramatic. A fine iconostasis separates the holy sanctum from the worshippers. The dome was infused with light, adding a celestial feel.

Travelled up by the funicular and was amazed to come out so close to the top and this wonderful chapel. very moving. Highly recommend that you come close to dusk, where the city looks truly lovely.

We took the cable cart up to the top! There were some great views and you are able to have a look inside the old chapel. Once you’ve had a look around there isn’t anything else up there apart from a bar. If the sun is out it would be great to chill and have some drinks but It was too windy. I will review the restaurant on their trip adviser I personally wouldn’t recommend.

The Chapel of St George sits overlooking the city atop Lycabettus Hill. It's a beautiful setting with history. The view is worth the hike, and it's a long hike up and down.

This little white church stands at the very top of Lycabettus Hill. It is very quaint and worth viewing while you are there. It's beautifully decorated inside with paintings and murals and it's exterior crosses light up at night if you're there for the Sunset.
