Your Secret place in Athens is...
The highest hill in Athens is a wonderful viewpoint of the city . Once up you will realize how big it is! You can play to find the
most important monuments, such as the Parthenon, the temple of Olympian Zeus or the
Panathenaic stadium. You can go up on foot doing a little exercise or taking the funicular for €7.50 (round trip) . From up there we saw one of the most amazing sunsets we have ever witnessed anywhere in the world .
The thunderclouds and lightning falling above the orange sky were quite a sight. So we recommend you go up a while before sunset to see Athens from the heights by day and by night. Upstairs there is a restaurant where you can dine with scandalous views.
Also do not miss this Rooftop...
The Foundry Rooftop Garden
At the top of the incredible The Foundry Suites aparthotel in the center of Psyrri, you'll find what is probably the most lush and enchanting setting for enjoying Athens from above.
Adorned with olive trees, colorful flowers, grass-covered tiles, and vine-covered pergolas, the Roof Garden Bar has the look and feel of an untouched Athenian backyard.
Surrounded by fantastic views over the Acropolis and the
city, here you can enjoy local and fresh flavors. The rooftop menu includes wines from small Greek winemakers, beers from local microbreweries, refreshing juices, and
There are also homemade pizzas baked in a traditional wood-fired oven on the roof, and a picnic platter very appropriate to the setting.
For a natural and relaxing experience on the roof of
Athens, you must try the Roof Garden at The Foundry Suites.
