The View

The View

Lots of spots boast great Acropolis views, but you’ll be looking up at it. For the most truly epic view of the sacred rock, head up to the rooftop terrace bar at the St. George Lycabettus Hotel in Kolonaki. From the Syntagma area, walk up steep Pindarou Street until it ends and you’ll see the hotel on your right. Take the elevator that’s to the left of the reception desk to the seventh floor and behold — all of Athens will be at your feet, with the Acropolis in the center and beyond it, after the sun sets, the twinkling lights of freighter ships in the Saronic Gulf. Yes, it’s insanely romantic, so let the ouzo roll.
