What You Can Expect
Stop to pose for pictures in front of the incredible Rock of Ares (Aereopagus) on Mars Hill and marvel at the city panoramas that lie before you. Work your way across to Keramikos Cemetery – an ancient site littered with hundreds of ornate statues and monuments – and continue to Plaka, the city’s Old Town. As you pedal along, admire the neighborhood’s Neoclassical architecture, Byzantine churches and bustling independent shops.
Take a break by Plaka’s food market, and head inside one of its century-old pastry shops to enjoy a selection of traditional Greek deserts and snacks – typically made with an abundance of honey, nuts and fruit.
Continue to Syntagma Square in the heart of downtown Athens, and then enter the National Gardens of Athens to see the Presidential Guards guarding the Presidential Palace in their distinctive red berets. Pass Panathinaikos Stadium – the site of the very first modern Olympic Games – and then ride back toward the Acropolis, stopping briefly at Hadrian’s Arch. Hear how the Emperor Hadrian designed the monumental gateway to separate the old and new parts of the city, and then ride back to the start point, where your tour ends.
We had an amazing time and highly recommend this tour. Our guide, Kostas was TOPS!
This is a fun and educational tour. As good as the similar bike tours in Paris/Versailles and Barcelona for all the same reasons: you aren't cooped up in a bus, but you get to cover much more of the city than you would cover on foot, and the guide is very interactive and knowledgeable.
