5. Pnyka

Pnyka Hill is a spiritual place that locals love. Pnyka Hill was the place where Athenians gather in antiquity to share their philosophy, ideas and democratic beliefs. You can say that here is where democracy were born and grew. Today locals love it because of its great vibe and its beautiful natural surrounding. 
Enjoy a lovely view over the city any time and walk between ancient trees where all the famous ancient great men walked thousands years before you. 
It is best to be here early afternoon until the sunset. The light is amazing and the feeling unique!
Continue your peaceful walk around Filopappou Hill and the historical Thissio area. 
It is a sacred ground you are walking on, feel it!


4. Lycabettus Hill


Locals' best place after a long night out in the bars of the city. Lycabettus Hill with its gorgeous little white chapel on top is the hill of love where you can enjoy amazing sun rises but also wonderful sunsets over the city. You can get here by car and if you want you can walk around until the top of the hill. 
If you go up until you reach the white little church you will be amazed with the city landscape. The view is uninterrupted until Peiraias and in a clear day you can see further until the islands. You can also do outdoor activities such as cycling, running and other activities in Athens.
