What to Expect
Travel back in time to Ancient Greece and get closer to the antiquities of Athens on a half-day e-bike tour. Explore cultural sights and old city neighborhoods along the way.
Start by cycling to the National Observatory to see where the astronomer Metron made his observations in ancient times. Visit Pnyx Hill to discover where Athenians would gather and democratically vote for issues concerning the city.
Continue to the archaeological zone of Keramikos for a view of Lycabettus Hill, the tallest hill in Athens. Next, bike down Ermou Street into the famous area of Psirri. See the Tzistirakis Mosque, the ruins of Hadrian’s Library, and the Roman Forum, dominated by the Tower of the Winds to the east. Learn how the tower was used as an hydraulic hourglass and weathervane in ancient times.
Pause for a coffee in a traditional Greek café. Then, bike to the Acropolis, before riding alongside the Ancient Agora with its imposing temple dedicated to Hephaestus. End at the magnificent Odeon of Herodes Atticus.
