Lykavittos

“The touch of an infinite mystery passes over the trivial and the familiar, making it break out into ineffable music. The trees, the stars, and the blue hills ache with a meaning which can never be uttered in words.” Rabindranath Tagore

I’m not sure if I have the right words to describe what is to walk up to Lykavittos ( the highest hill in Athens) and see the whole town in your feet, sparkling under the morning sun, and I’m not sure if my camera was able to capture the glory of each moment, but still, I’d like to share with you my favorite place in the city- Lykavittos hill.

    Wow, thanks for sharing that amazing view with us. I had no idea that the city was so large! Looks like you had a perfect day for it. :)

      It looks magnificent and rather big from up there, shame I live down, down, where very little of its majesty can be seen and still big, but crowded and not that pleasant to live at :)
