Photos from Florida's Capital City (and occasionally a few from other interesting places I have been fortunate enough to visit in my travels!)

Lykavittos Hill, also known as Mount Lycabettus, seen from the top of the Acropolis in Athens, Greece. According to Greek mythology, Athena, the patron deity of Athens, dropped the rock here by accident when she was creating the Acropolis. The top of the hill used to be barren, until trees were planted there at the turn of the twentieth century. The 19th century Chapel of St. George, a theatre, and a restaurant are located at the top. At a height of over 900 feet (277 meters), Lykavittos can been seen from almost anywhere in Athens.

Wow, this is amazing! Now, how do people get up there?

Quite a view!
Great shot! Such a beautiful scene. Greece is a place I have always wanted to visit since my teens. One of these days I hope :) I have really enjoyed all your photos, thank you Lois.
Awesome photo, Lois. It's a beauty!

All the best Jan
A beautiful landmark, and one that probably makes it much easier to navigate the city and not get lost!
Isn't that just an amazing outcrop.
Beautiful blue sky and fascinating legend about Lykavittos.
Gorgeous shot. We should all be as fortunate as Athena with our accidents.
Fantástica esta bela vista e aproveito para desejar um bom fim-de-semana.
