The adventure begins as you pedal through the magnificent National Gardens. This verdant oasis in the heart of Athens offers breathtaking views and scenic trails. Along the way, catch a glimpse of the iconic Panathenaic Stadium, symbolizing the modern Olympic Games, and marvel at Zappeion Hall, an architectural gem and one of the city's most significant landmarks. Before heading to the Acropolis, capture unforgettable photos in front of the Temple of Olympian Zeus and Hadrian's Arch.

Visit the Parthenon Marble Temple

The second part of the tour is dedicated exclusively to the Acropolis and Parthenon. Safely securing the bikes, you venture forth on a historic exploration of the Acropolis. Immerse yourself in the grandeur of the Theatre of Dionysus, the serene Temple of Asclepius, and the Odeon of Herodes Atticus. Witness the sheer magnitude of the Temple of Athena Nike, marvel at the imposing Propylaea, and behold the ethereal beauty of the Erechtheion. Ascending to the hill's summit, you stand humbled before the resplendent Parthenon, its sublime presence commanding your attention.

Having completed the historic portion of the Acropolis Tour, you descend from the hill. Pedaling along a wide pedestrian path, you arrive at Thission, a vibrant neighborhood. Pass by the Ancient Greek and Roman Agora and find yourself at the Athens City Cathedral with the city's largest Orthodox church. The end of the tour leads you through the charming Plaka Neighborhood, a labyrinth of streets adorned with local shops offering unique souvenirs and delightful trinkets, providing the perfect opportunity to bring home a piece of Athens.
