You have to walk up the stairs... But it is worth it to see Athens from above. Really nice view and the small church is very nice

This is a lovely landmark more than anything else. It is on top of Lycavittos hill, the highest in Athens, the other one being the Acropolis. The little chapel was built around the 18th century, fell into disrepair and was rebuilt later. No-one really knows...More

Kolonaki / Lykavittos
By far the ritziest neighbourhood 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

which add to the air of nobility. The leafy upper

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.
