Located on the top of Lycabettus hill, the highest spot of the city right in the center of Athens, it is a steep walk to reach Prasini Tenta, but just the view itself is worth the hike.

Prasini Tenta (Green Tent) is named after the color of the awnings on the cafe's terraces. Located on the top of Lycabettus hill, the highest spot of the city right in the center of Athens, it is a steep walk to reach Prasini Tenta, but just the view itself is worth the hike. Alternatively, you can take the cable car located in Kolonaki that takes you to the hilltop in 3 minutes or take a car and park a few meters from the cafe.

Many hiking paths can take you up to the hill; for those more adventurous, Lycabettus also boasts a small canyon. Here however I am focusing more on the self-awarded prize waiting for you at the end of your hike. Prasini Tenta is a quietly chic place, successfully blending with its green surroundings. You can enjoy your coffee or meal during the day or night. The breathtaking view reaches as far as the sea and nearby islands, and you can easily spend hours looking at all the Athenian beauties from above. I can't think of a better place for a first date! Bear in mind, however, that this view does not come cheap and that the dishes are a bit overpriced. Enjoy your hike, your drinks, your dinner, or any combination of the above!
