The hill was a rock that goddess Athena carried in her hands and she dropped in Athens when she heard the bad news that a crow told her. From the top of Lycabettus, which is adorned by the small church of Agios Georgios, you can see the whole peninsula and if the weather is good even the Saronic Gulf. To reach there you have to select between the cable car and the wooded paths. At the foothills of the rock is carved the small church of Agioi Isidoroi.

A green area for relaxation that was added to the few oases of green in the city is the Rizari Park which opened for the Athenians in 2010.
