Well worth the visit - the views are incredible and we ate at the restaurant which is a little pricey but worth it for the views.

You have to climb so many stairs to get there and then you have a small crowded place where you can see the city and the sea but it isn’t a place where you can stay very long to appreciate the views.

One of the best places. So calm and peaceful. You will enjoy the view from the top of the mountain. You can reach the mountain by using the funicular or by walking.

By far the ritziest neighborhood in town, Kolonaki is

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

I’d recommend you take a cab from there that drops you in a huge parking lot where you can hike up the mountain.
