You will find our meeting point very close to the Acropolis metro station, where your tour leader will be there to welcome you. After getting equipped with a bike and a helmet you will receive a safety briefing before heading on an exciting adventure! Reach the National Observatory first, where you will get the chance to take amazing photos from a hidden spot with breathtaking views. Follow the path to Thission area, a lovely pedestrian place with beautiful coffee shops and great views of the Acropolis and cycle by the ancient cemetery of Kerameikos. Cycle next to the Greek and Roman Agoras on your way to Plaka neighborhood, the picturesque area with the aligned souvenir markets at the foot of the Acropolis. After exploring hidden paths and marveling at Athens' most and lesser famous spots, it's time for a short break at the Athens' Orthodox Cathedral to enjoy a refreshing coffee or beverage. When our short break comes to an end, it's time to continue the tour towards the other side of the Acropolis and make a short stop at the Panathenaic Stadium where you will have the chance to take a glimpse of the birthplace of the Olympic Games. Ride through the wide pedestrian area of the magnificent Neoclassical building of the Zappeion hall before making a brief stop outside the Presidential Mansion to enjoy the unique event of the change of the guards. Finish off your tour in front of the Temple of Olympian Zeus and take memorable photos with Hadrian's Arch and the Acropolis above as your picturesque background.
