Athens Bike Tour: City Highlights

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

Begin your tour at the foot of the UNESCO-listed Acropolis, where you’ll meet your guide and listen to a brief safety overview. Then snap on your helmet and take off into the streets, exploring the lower slopes of the Acropolis as you go. 

Soak up panoramic views at the Rock of Ares, once a court in classical times. Cycle past the ancient Keramikos Cemetery, strewn with elaborate statues and monuments. Afterward, continue to the neighborhood of Plaka, characterized by its Byzantine churches, Neoclassical architecture and local shops buzzing with activity.

After winding through the area, arrive at Plaka’s food market and hop off your bike, following your guide inside a pastry shop. Savor a spread of traditional desserts made with fruit, honey and nuts within the century-old establishment.

With your sweet tooth sated, travel toward downtown Athens, past Syntagma Square. Check out the presidential guards in the National Gardens as they keep watch over the palace.

Next, see the where the first modern Olympics games were held at Panathinaikos Stadium before returning back toward the Acropolis. Make a brief stop in front of Hadrian's Arch, the famous monument designed by Emperor Hadrian to separate the old and new sections of the city.

After three hours of sightseeing and fresh air, your bike tour will conclude back at your original departure point.
