Lycabettus Hill in Europe

The Essential Gardens of Athens

Did you know that Athens has fewer gardens than any other European city? Because of this fact; there are 2.5 square meters of greenery per person compared to the 10 square meters of a more garden friendly European city. The European Environmental Bureau considers 10 square meters of public grassy recreational centers "tolerable." Yet, this rarity in Athens makes parks quite an escape from the fast paced life of the city. The Philopappou Hill, National Garden, Mount Parnitha, Syngrou Estates, Kaisariani and Mt. Hymettus, and Lycabettus Hill are well maintained gardens. Some have been spruced up with new benches and herbaceous borders. In addition, all provide a respite from traffic fumes and honking horns. Come join us for a walking tour of "The Essential Gardens of Athens." We need our walking shoes, sunblock, water and a camera. Now, we are read to enjoy!

Acropolis - The Religious Centre of Athens

There are two characteristic hills in the Attica Basin: Lycabettus, the higher and steeper of the two, and the Acropolis, at an altitude of about 150 m. above sea level, on the slopes of which spring waters still flow. It is on account of these springs that the rock has been inhabited from the neolithic age on.
