This morning bike tour lasts about 3.5 hours and it is a nice way to get yourselves oriented in the city of Athens. The ride takes place in the amazing historic city center, on pedestrian areas, low traffic streets and parks and away from the traffic hustle.
Your local tour leader will head the tour, riding with you very close to the main archaeological sites and guiding you through some hidden areas, while providing you with a stunning experience!
During our 20-minute break, you will have the chance to taste a traditional Greek dessert or a refreshment/coffee (according to the season) and relax for a while.
We ride close to the new Acropolis Museum and the Ancient Cemetery of Kerameikos, through the neighborhood of Thission, while you enjoy a great view of the Acropolis and the Parthenon. We then, cycle through the Ancient Greek Agora and pass by the Roman Agora. We continue cycling in the historic district of Plaka, and then we move to the National Gardens, one of the best areas to ride downtown Athens. We will also stop in front of the Presidential Mansion to see the Presidential Guards, pass by the Panathenaic Stadium and Zappeion exhibition Hall.
This bike tour is designed for the average cyclist. Small groups and our local tour leaders ensure your safety.
