Lykavittos Hill is the highest point in Athens and as such a prime location from which to view the city. If you’re not up for a strenuous uphill walk there is a tram service running from the bottom to the top. Perched inside the hill, we couldn’t find it, though, so we ended up walking all the way which was quite a good workout.
After a bumpy landing, we jumped on a bus and headed to our hotel. A ticket costs EUR 6.00 and lasts for 3 hours. More than enough time to make it to our stop—even if the bus didn’t exactly follow the route suggested by Google Maps. Missing the mark by a few blocks, we had a five-minute walk back before arriving at the hotel. Just in time before lightning and thunder struck.
