Mount Lycabettus is a hill in Athens, Greece. The hill stands at 300 metres above sea level. The hill gets its name from the neighbourhood to its east. The bottom of the hill is covered by pine trees but there are a theatre and restaurant at the top of the hill. The hill is known for its views over Athens and a funicular was installed to transport people up the hill.
The hill is situated close to the city centre of Athens. You can get to the mount by taking the 60 bus. The ‘Megaro Mousikis’ is the closest tram stop on the M3 line.
Opening Times and Admission
The hill is free to visit at any hour of any day but the funicular only operates on certain time schedules (mainly normal working hours).
