Full description

Embark on an electric bike tour of Athens that combines the city’s ancient and modern sites, and enjoy panoramic views, picturesque streets, and well-known archeological sights along the way. Following a short briefing and test ride at the centrally located meeting point, cruise through a park to familiarize yourself with the bike before the start of your tour proper.

Glide effortlessly up the hill to Pnyka and Filoppappou, where there will be time to admire the views and take panoramic photos. Go to see the Odeon of Herodes Atticus and the Areios Pagos (Supreme Court) on the slopes of the Acropolis, before heading to the Temple of Zeus and Hadrian’s Arch.

Along the way, discover some of the city’s more modern monuments, and look at the Evzones (guards) standing in front of the Parliament building in their colorful tunics. Travel through the National Gardens to arrive at the Panathenaic Stadium, the site of the very 1st Olympic Games. Then, cycle back through the narrow streets of Plaka to discover a picturesque neighborhood just steps from the Acropolis.

Stop to look at the Tower of Winds and discover the Roman and ancient markets, before heading back.

This was a fun and easy way to see the city of Athens. Our kids (14 & 12) loved the ebikes and going at 8 pm meant we avoided the heat of the day. It was more informative than I thought it would be - more of a tour and less actual biking/exercise. Recommend highly!

A very interesting and enjoyable activity! This allowed us to better discover the city and the monuments that make it up! The assistance of the electric bike is not negligible and allows you to do the activity without providing any physical effort! We end the activity with a restaurant that Marina kindly recommended to us, a stone's throw from the agency! (the atlantiko) Thank you again for this good time!

Highly recommend this tour. Sterois was our guide. It was just me and my husband which was perfect to take in the city with just us. Great way to see the highlights and orient yourself in the city. Incredible views of the city. Recommend for early in your trip, especially because it allows you to revisit the spots throughout in more depth.
