Athens Bike Tour: City Highlights

Ride around the slopes of the Acropolis on your Athens bike tour!

Meet your guide at the foot of the UNESCO-listed Acropolis in central Athens and after listening to a safety briefing, put on your helmet, hop on your bike and set off on your way. Following your guide, leave the busy city center streets behind, riding along the streets around the Acropolis, seeing many of the city’s historical monuments.

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.

This bike tour was excellent. Vivian is extremely knowledgable and takes you to see all of the highlights. Good to do this on your first day before sightseeing on foot as it helps you get your bearings of where everything is.

Excellent tour. We only had one day in Athens so this worked out perfectly. We were able to see 20x more of this great city than if we walked. Best bang for your buck.

It was awesome. I was the only guest on the tour, but Vivien took the time to show me everything, even the little things like the oldest bakery or delicious desserts I would have never known about, if she wouldn't have shown me. Worth the money!

Guide was GREAT


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Our guide Vivian was very knowledgeable and included visiting some local markets and bakeries serving traditional food as part of the tour. The ride was easy and streets were not crowded as has been the case when we did this tour in other cities. We were able to cover a large area in a short time. Highly recommended.
