  • Athens: 1-Hour Mount Lycabettus Tuk-Tuk Ride

    1. Athens: 1-Hour Mount Lycabettus Tuk-Tuk Ride

    Climb Mount Lycabettus on an open-air, three-wheeled tuk-tuk for optimal viewing as your cruise through the bustling streets of Athens. Meet your host in the city center at Syntagma Square, hop on your tuk-tuk and head towards the mountain. Take a brief drive through the presidential residence to see the traditional guards then go straight to Mount Lycabettus. Spend some time on the mountain, taking the stairs up to shoot some panoramic photos of Athens. At the top of Mount Lycabettus there is a church and telescopes available for use. Afterward, visit Monastiraki Square after passing through narrow crowded roads and return to Syntagma Square.

    Five stars! Highly recommended! The tour could not take place as described, due to closures and blocked roads that were not the fault of the driver. However, he went above and beyond and this was a great travel excursion. We saw central Athens and many interesting neighborhoods. Very much a wonderful experience. I recommend the driver Giorgis.
