Wyndham Athens Residence offers you a glimpse at some of the hidden treasures in the city! Contact us for information on walking tours and other activities in the area. Or else, check out the following hidden gems in Athens. Lycabettus Hill is the highest peak in Athens, with an imposing altitude of 277 meters above sea level. Goddess Athena dropped a rock and Lycabettus was formed. Upon reaching the top, the views from above are simply magical! Anafiotika is a picturesque neighborhood underneath the Acropolis, next to the famous Plaka. Immigrants from the quaint island of Anafi resided there and therefore resembles life on a Cycladic island. A walk through Anafiotika’s narrow pathways will make you travel to an island without leaving the Greek capital!Mount Hymettus is less prominent than Mount Lycabettus, but equally thrilling. It is a popular hiking option for locals, while Kaisariani Monastery is a great place to visit dating back to the 12th century. Strefi Hill is located in the avant-garde, alternative neighborhood called Exarcheia. Climbing to the top of the hill offers a panoramic view to the entire city. Gaze at the Athenian Riviera, the illuminated Acropolis and Lycabettus Hill, the starlit Athenian sky and much more!
