Our Athens Coastal tour is the perfect half-day activity in the Athens Riviera! The city has the privilege of being next to a unique seaside resort with crystal clear blue water beaches, luxurious marinas, yacht clubs, and numerous Athens beach bars and clubs. Explore an unseen urban and local side of the city. 

Get some exercise and enjoy the sun during this bike tour, while cycling through picturesque neighborhoods on this, beyond the city center of Athens, outdoor activity. In summertime and/or when weather permits, don’t forget to bring your swimsuit with you, as you can enjoy swimming in the sea at one of Athens’ nice beaches!

Our Athens Coastal tour starts from the biggest pedestrian street of Athens, located a stone’s throw away from Acropolis, where you will have a short introduction about the tour’s schedule.

Equipped with a comfortable bike for a relaxed and enjoyable tour, we will start our cycling through the scenic neighborhood of Plaka. On our way to the Roman Agora, we will enjoy a marvelous view of the Acropolis. The lovely neighborhood of Thission and the Ancient Greek cemetery of Kerameikos will be the last landmarks of the historic center.

Then, we will get on a bike path that leads to the coastline, through some urban and picturesque neighborhoods of Athens: Petralona, Kallithea, and Moschato. After about 45 minutes of cycling on flat terrain, we will reach the southern suburbs. One of the highlights of this trip is the visit to Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center, a masterpiece of modern architecture. The Foundation hosts the new National Library and the new National Opera House.

Our Athens Coastal tour will continue by crossing the Naval Museum & the Flisvos Marina, where the luxurious speed boats and yachts are docked. Enjoying the refreshing sea breeze of the Athenian Riviera, we finally arrive at Alimos Marina.

Halfway through the tour, we will stop for a well-earned 30-minute break at a nice sandy beach, where you can either enjoy swimming or have a drink/refreshment at a beach bar.

After the refreshing break, we will start cycling back towards the city center. Before completing the tour, we will lead you to one of the best places in Athens to taste some delicious handmade local pastries. This tour will help you gain a great overall impression of the city and its suburbs.

Enjoy the sea breeze and explore Athens from a different point of view cycling along the coast and admiring the deep blue water of the Saronic gulf. Our coastal tour starts and ends at the city center.

Nice time

I was so defensive booking this but Joan (daughter 14 years old) found it and talked all on this..happy we did! Easier than walking, safe and saw lots of staff, come to think of it would have been a pity not to do this.
