Day 9 - Breakfast -> Walk to Mount Lycabettus -> Hike up to Mount Lycabettus -> Shop at Carrefour

Hubby took pictures of Monastiraki Square in early morning when everyone was still asleep


Church of Panagia Kapnikarea, a Greek Orthodox church and one of the oldest churches in Athen.

Church of the Pantanassa or of the Dormition of the Theotokos, a 10th-century katholikon of a now-vanished monastery in Monastiraki Square

Monastiraki Square

We cooked maggie mee and had that as breakfast

The church of St Irene rings the bell every hour at the hour

Church of St Irene near our apartment

En route to Mount Lycabettus

It was not a very difficult hike to the mount. We can see Acropolis from here

Finally, we reached the top- Church of Agios Georgios - a very tiny Greek Orthodox Church

Breathtaking views of the whole city at the top!

Parking area

One can take the funicular if one does not want to walk up.

Enroute, downhill
