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!
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 and Monastiraki flea market. 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.
