Know More about this tour

Many visitors to Athens never experienced the citys striking waterfront. To begin your coastal bike adventure, meet your guide and pick up a high-quality bike and helmet near the Acropolis metro station in the morning. Start by pedaling around the base of the Acropolis in the small streets of Plaka neighborhood, get unique views of the Parthenon and pass next to the Roman Forum and the Ancient Agora to the Thission neighborhood.

Continue along a flat, bike-friendly route through the citys quieter neighborhoods for about 5 miles (8 km) to reach the coast. Enjoy the fresh Aegean breeze and relaxed atmosphere away from the bustle of the city center, and take in great views of the Saronic Gulf. See waterside highlights like the SNFCC New Opera House and National Library of Athens, the Tae Kwon Do complex from the 2004 Olympic Games and the Faliro Marina.

Continue towards Kalamaki Beach, where you will get some free leisure time to relax and take advantage of the beautiful sandy beach. On the ride back to the city center, we pass through the luxurious Flisvos Marina and then stop in a local pastry shop to taste some local delicacies. By the time you return to the original departure point in the early afternoon, expect to complete around 15 miles (25 km) during the relaxed ride.

  • This was my second time with Athens By Bike. I ended up getting a private tour with Dimitri. Awesome bike ride, really nice scenery, and knowledgeable guide. The first time I was in Athens I spent all my time learning about ancient Athens, this was a really good way to experience modern Athens.

  • Demitrious and Sofor were excellent tour guides who gave us a lot of information at our varied stops during the ride. Athens' bike lanes are not well separated and makes for an interesting trip. I am a 66 year old novice bike rider and, while I made it through, I think one should have a modicum of experience before taking on a trip of this length.

  • This was an amazing tour and probably my favorite experience in Athens. It's great to be out, seeing the sights, and breathing that fresh sea air! Easy enough for all fitness levels flat surface.

  • Such an enjoyable day with Dimitris. Would recommend this to anyone no matter what age you are or how fit you are

  • Many thanks to Kostas for a wonderful tour. We were in Athens for over a week and not going on to the coast anywhere else and it was just great to get out of the city centre and down to the coast - and to see other bits of Athens. Kostas is doing a PhD in History and know his stuff! My husband didn't bike as a child and is thus nervous on roads. But this tour was fine as it really was on cycle paths most of the way.

  • This tour is a great way to learn about the bike path to the coast. It's also a nice way to relax and spend the day. I would only recommend this trip if you are on an extended stay in Athens and are looking for something different to do it's about 4 hours of time, that depending on your itinerary, you might want to spend at other major sites.

    Bikes were very comfortable and biking company was really professional. You also stop for a coffee at a really nice seaside taverna that has an excellent view.

  • The coastal bike tour was great , not least because Kostas was such a friendly, positive and easy-going person. He kept me informed of what the ride was going to be like ahead, what we'd be experiencing, what the path/road/terrain was like. I always felt safe, well-informed and very welcome. I'd recommend this trip to anyone who wants to get away from the city for half a day and smell the fresh salt air.

  • We had a great time!

  • This was an absolute highlight of our visit to Athens. Athens by Bike are an extremely professional outfit, their staff and quality of their bikes are outstanding. Our guide Alex ensured our cycling experience through Athens was a memorable occasion and also provided us with recommendations on local bars and restaurants to vist (even guiding us to a wonderful restaurant at the conclusion of our tour). Alex is extremely knowledgable on the history of Greece and provided us with a fabulous insight into the Greek way of life as we cycled through the suburbs on our way to the Coast. Our cycling trip was around 25kms with the stretch along the coastline providing us with a very different perspective of Athens. We enjoyed an iced coffee at a beautiful beachside cafe and enjoyed watcing the locals relaxing at the beach.
    If you have the time...this is a and #34;must do and #34; whilst in Athens
    Thanks for an amazing experience Alex!!
