What to expect
Our afternoon bike tour offers a chance to capture a sunset in Athens as you ride around the city and pass by all the must see locations. This is a more relaxed tour with lots of breathtaking views. Although the route is different from the morning tour, none of the sites are missed. We ride in the National Gardens, observe the Presidential guards and then we get a good look at the Panathenaic Stadium and Zappeion Exhibition hall. We will pass by the Ancient cemetery of Keramikos, as well as the Ancient Greek Agora and the Roman Agora. The new Acropolis Museum is in our route and, of course, plenty of amazing spots to get awesome photos of the Parthenon. Plaka neighborhood and Anafiotika complete our tour experience. Sometimes you would need to get off your bike and walk where bikes have no access. We will lead you to amazing spots, offering panoramic views of the city of Athens.
