This pretty little Orthodox Chapel is located atop Lycabettus Hill. You can take a funicular to the top for a small fee (CASH ONLY). The church is free to visit, and is very small. It is an interesting thing to see, and has a pretty...More

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.

This is a beautiful little chapel on a hilltop in the middle of Athens accessible by cable car, elevator or you can walk up the mountain if you're able-bodied. Even when you get off the cable car there are a number of steps to climb....More

Great to visit. Wonderful views of Athens. Was very windy (Zorba the Medicane was visiting also) but obviously not The Chapel's fault.

On top of Mount Lycabettus, the beautiful views are accompanied by a small church that was built in the 1800’s. The church is small, but make sure to look at the paintings on the walls. Nice little historic church to visit on your trip to...More

Beautiful view of the city, well worth the climb. The restaurant on top was spectacular. The grilled veggies and Greek salad was one of my favorite meals in Greece. I almost didn’t go up, so glad I did.

Climb up here to enjoy a view of all Athens. There are quiet a few steps but there is supposed to be a train option too. Cafe at the top by the church to reward the climb

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.
