The best vantage point in Athens is Lykavittos Hill, which stands right in the middle of the city and reaches an altitude of 295 meters. Visitors will enjoy panoramic views of Athens as they look down on the Acropolis and other major sights. The hilltop—on which the picturesque St. George Chapel and the cafe are located—can be reached by foot, by car or by cable-car. The latter runs every 30 minutes and departs from the corner of Aristippou and Ploutarchou Streets in Kolonaki. The hill is also the site of the Lykavittos Theatre which overlooks the city.
