"According to the ceremony, on 20th of July celebrating the memory of Prophet Elijah, the faithful ascend the mountain of Imitos from an alley that leads to the chapel to light a candle and honor it. Indeed, the mountain is illuminated by lights that light up especially for these days" In our experience, we will try to follow this ceremonial on the footprints of the pilgrims: Pick up from Eliniko metro station by car. Short drive to starting point Sunset trek at the south of Imitos mountain with open view to Saronic gulf's islands. We follow a rocky path, signed with red crosses, known only to locals . Recognize characteristic red rocks, olive trees , colorful flowers and local herbs ~40min Stop at Prophet Elias chapel and ring the big bell!! Observe the tiny inside, decorated by plenty saint's paints offered by pilgrims and light up a candle (optional). Grab the perfect seat on the rocks and listen stories from the surrounded area Watch the moment the sun sets all around you and Athens turns into a spectacular night vista of sparkling lights. Use your camera or phone to take photos ! Hike down with flashlights surrounded by city lights! Drop off same metro station *See notes

Waar je naartoe gaat
The south part of Mt Ymmittos is primary rocky and wild. The name comes from the pre-Hellenic which meant a tough, rocky place.It's a rich ecosystem with more than 600 species of plants and several species of birds & mammals. The bas-relief of the mountain is reminiscent of a Cycladic island, having an open view to the saronic gulf and the islands (Aegina / Salamina)
