For an alternative experience of Athens, there is a more tranquil path leading away from the hustle and bustle of the historic site, totaling just over 4-4:30 hours and circa 20km.
Beginning in the attractive neighborhood of Thiseio, the route promptly connects with the cycle road heading south west to the coastline, through some nice Athenian neighborhoods.
Discover an alternative side of Athens, with a leisurely cycle out to the coast. Enjoy fresh angles on prominent sights like the Parthenon, whilst cruising along bike-friendly routes to find yourself at the Athens Riviera. Following the coastlines, you’ll drink-in the fantastic views of the Saronic Gulf, whilst rolling towards the Opera House, Flisvos Marina and Faliro Olympic Complex. With ample opportunity to explore the Marina, your guide will furnish you with in-depth knowledge of the culture and history of this beautiful stretch of Athens, including the 2004 Olympic Games sites. With the sea breeze keeping you cool as you roam the waterfront, this is a cooler, calmer alternative to the busy built up city streets.
