Lykavittos Hill information
The name Lykavittos – ‘Hill of Wolves’ – derives from ancient times, when the hill was surrounded by countryside and its pine-covered slopes were inhabited by wolves. A path leads to the summit from the top of Loukianou for the finest panoramas of the city and the Attic basin – the nefos (pollution haze) permitting. Alternatively, take the funicular railway , or teleferik , from the top of Ploutarhou in Kolonaki. Perched on the summit is the little Chapel of Agios Giorgios , floodlit like a beacon over the city at night.
Open-air Lykavittos Theatre , northeast of the summit, hosts concerts in summer.
