WHAT TO EXPECT
Our Coastal Athens Tour starts at 9.30 am very close to the metropolis metro station. Here, you are given your rental bike and the guide will give a short overview of the planned tour.

The cycling fun starts with a ride through the colourful old town district of Plaka towards the ancient pottery and cemetery district of Kerameikos. Enjoy great views of the Acropolis along the way!

Shortly afterwards, we reach the cycle path that leads us to the coast. We cycle through the varied city quarters of Petralona, Kallithea, and Moschato. These beautiful districts captivate with their urban flair.

After a 45-minute ride, we reach the southern suburbs and visit the magnificent Stavros Niarchos Foundation. The cultural centre is a masterpiece of modern architecture and houses the new National Library and the National Opera House. The extensive gardens are an extremely popular destination among Athenians.

We cycle on and soon reach the Naval Museum and the impressive Flisvos Marina, where we can marvel at the multitude of luxury yachts moored at the docks. We continue along the Riviera to Alimos Marina before taking a half-hour break on a beautiful sandy beach. Use the time for a swim in the sea or treat yourself to a refreshing drink at the beach bar!

After our well-deserved break, we return to the city centre, stopping shortly before the end of the tour at a patisserie, which entices us from afar with its delicious aroma to sample some tasty pastries. With wit and charm, the guide reveals the secrets of the metropolis.

There is plenty of time to enjoy the places visited along the way, to savour the views, and to take beautiful pictures. By the end of the tour, you will have gained a broad impression of the diversity of the Greek capital.
