It was founded in 1837 as a part-time vocational school named Royal School of Arts which, as its role in the technical development of the fledgling state grew, developed into Greece's sole institution providing engineering degrees up until the 1950s, when polytechnics were established outside Athens. Its traditional campus, located in the center of the city of Athens on Patision Avenue, features a suite of magnificent neo-classical buildings by architect Lysandros Kaftantzoglou (1811–1885). A suburban campus, the Zografou Campus, was built in the 1980s.

Mount Lycabettus, also known as Lycabettos, Lykabettos or Lykavittos, is a Cretaceous limestone hill in Athens, Greece. At 277 meters (908 feet) above sea level, the hill is the highest point in the city that surrounds it. Pine trees cover its base, and at its two peaks are the 19th century Chapel of St. George, a theatre, and a restaurant. The hill is a popular tourist destination and can be ascended by the Lycabettus Funicular, a funicular railway which climbs the hill from a lower terminus at Kolonaki (The railway station can be found at Aristippou street). Lycabettus appears in various legends. Popular stories suggest it was once the refuge of wolves, possibly the origin of its name (which means "the one that is walked by wolves"). Mythologically, Lycabettus is credited to Athena, who created it when she dropped a mountain she had been carrying from Pallene for the construction of the Acropolis after the box holding Erichthonius was opened. The hill also has a large open-air theater at the top, which has housed many Greek and international concerts.

The old station of Attica Railways was opened on February 4, 1885, and closed down on August 8, 1938, pending electrification. The railway level crossing, which was replaced with a viaduct when the line was electrified, gave the location its old name Alyssida. The station was converted to standard gauge and was opened as part of the extension of Hellenic Electric Railways to Kifissia in February 1956. The station has two platforms and a reversing siding located between the up and down lines, which can connect to either track, so it can be used as a terminal station if needed. Ano Patissia station was actually used until 1985 as the northern terminus of a local service Thision-Patisia, to improve the service in the central part of the line. After a recent renovation for the 2004 Olympic Games, the station features escalators and lifts for the disabled. The station is located next to the Eastern Orthodox parish church of Saint Barbara and near the shopping area of Ano Patisia.
