Our family of 6 went on a 3 hour tour led by Dimitris. My wife was rather new to cycling and he was very patient with her. Dimitris speaks very good English and he shared many interesting facts about the city. We also appreciate his great sense of humour. There was also a wonderful coffee break in the middle of... More

Dimitris Xirogiannis was my cycle tour leader and it was quite a personal tour since I was the only person at that time slot. This made it very casual and Dimitris made feel more like his buddy then a customer. He is a knowledgeable witty person with great personal skills and his cycling nous was obvious - he took time...

Our guide, Dimitris, was so awesome! Literally was the best day ever! We saw all the main sites and he bought us coffee and sat with us chatting for an hour! He made us feel like we were all friends just biking around the city! AMAZING perfect way to see Athens in a day!

We suggest doing this bike tour in the beginning of the trip so Dimitris can show you all the important spots for you to go back to during your stay as well as giving you interesting information about the locations! He helped my friend and I find places around Athens to explore and it was well worth the time! He... More

City tour by bicycle is perfect way to orientate yourself when arriving in the city. Your guide will not only take you around city safely, but will provide many useful tips of visiting museums and historic sites, and provide eating recommendations too. Oh and will take photos of you and friends on your tour and emails them to you. It... More

My wife and I really appreciate Kostas' friendly tour and great information on all the spots. He went out of his way to ensure we were comfortable with the bikes, and even added additional sites and time to our scheduled bike tour. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Athens...we ended up cancelling our scheduled city bus tour after touring... More

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighbourhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centrepiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
