We are going to hike at Kaisariani forest only 3 klm from the center of Athens. After there are plenty of paths and forest roads crisscrossing the slopes of the mountain connecting monasteries and churches with panoramic viewpoints and shady hideouts. We visit the Byzantine Kaisariani Monastery, the ruins of Agios Taxiarches and the church of Agios Markos. This is an awesome place for a break or pick nick with a beautiful view of Athens. Following the botanical trail climbing above the monastery, you will stumble upon another small church hidden in the forest. From Analipsi the path continues up through the woods until it joins wide dirt road running across the slopes of the mountain. Turn left here following the road for a couple of kilometers enjoying the panoramic views of Athens underneath. It’ll take you to Kalopoula, the only refreshment at the Kaisariani forest.
It consists of a tiny wooden hut and a large outside seating area. Except for coffee and other drinks, they offer simple but tasty meal like bean soup, grilled cheese or different kinds of puff pastry pies.
We will walk back to the beginning of the trail at the meeting point, safe and full of experience the Greek nature history and amazing views.

The forest around Kaisariani Monastery on the western slopes of Mount Ymmitos is one of the best places to escape the mayhem of Athens for a day. Lying only about 20 minutes bus ride from Syntagma Square it is close enough to the city center but walking on its pretty forest trails you’ll feel miles away.

This is a wonderful excursion only 10 minutes out of Athens. Sakis will meet you at the pick up point and personally drive your party to the mountain. I would describe this more as a pleasant walk along the trails rather than any serious hiking, so regular walking shoes will suffice. There are stone pathways leading to the monastery, and all of the walkways are mostly shaded and have a lovely breeze. Sakis is very knowledgeable about the history of the structures and ruins in the area, as well as being able to answer questions about the city of Athens. A very nice change from the usual crowded tourist attractions!
