NileGuide Expert tip:
If you're in Athens in the Spring, the view of the Acropolis and Lycabettus Hill from the flower-topped hill of Pendeli is something that should not be missed!
Want to see a chapel built directly into a cave, once a shrine to Pan? Care to walk on the ancient road used to transport the marble for the Acropolis? You have to journey to Pendeli Mountain.
There are many people living in Athens that have never explored the richness of Pendeli Mountain, also spelled Penteli,
one of the three mountains surrounding Athens and not even half an hour from the city center.
This private tour will cover the strange history and unusual places, a great number of legends, stories, and factual accounts that swirl about its marble-covered mountainside. Call George for availability throughout the year.
