Description

Our Athens coastal bike 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 beaches, luxurious marinas, yacht clubs and numerous Athens beach bars and clubs.

We will cycle along the coast and admire the deep blue water of the Saronic Gulf. Our coastal tour starts and ends at the city center. Before beginning we will have a quick introduction about the tour’s schedule, after which we will start 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.

We will then move on to a bike path that leads to the coastline through three urban, picturesque neighborhoods of Athens: Petralona, Kallithea and Moschato. 

After about 45 minutes cycling on even terrain, we will reach the southern suburbs. One of the highlights of this trip is the visit at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center, a masterpiece of modern architecture. The Foundation hosts the new National Library and the new National Opera House. 

Our tour will continue by passing 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. 

Half-way 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 some refreshment at a beach bar.

Αfter our 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.

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.
