Add to Itinerary

Imagine bicycling around, through, and in between some of the oldest civilizations. The contrast of an electric bike ride with the ancient sites of Athens will be an unforgettable experience. Our well-designed tour will allow you to feel the freedom of bike travel as you are immersed into both a new culture and an old history.

Once you are comfortable on your electric bike, you will begin by following your leader into an experience that will be a highlight of your vacation. The tour begins in an area that allows you to get familiar with the bike and the sites. A wide promenade rings the Acropolis, along with other ancient sites, and will allow you to look around as you travel. You will pass the recently-opened Acropolis Museum, with a chance to admire the Herodes Atticus amphitheater. Pass by the Thission outdoor cinema, the Temple of Zeus, Hadrian’s Gate, and Lysicrates Monument.

Up next is a visit to Varvakios Market, a dramatic district with intense history where you'll peddle through the back streets to watch the daily habits of Athenians. A visit to Athens wouldn't be complete with visiting Plaka, the heart of Athens where legends, colors and the hidden face of this magical city come alive.
