This tour is a fun way to visit the most interesting places, which reveal the unique history of the capital of Greece. A 30-minute drive from the port brings you to your bike tour’s starting point. It is a journey back in time, passing by all the 'must see' locations of ancient Athens in an approximately 1 1/2-hour cycling tour that includes the Temple of Olympian Zeus and Hadrian’s Arch, the Plaka and Anafiotika, Roman Forum, Tower of the Winds, Ancient Agora and Kerameikos. Live the fun and educational experience as you cycle at a nice, relaxed pace making some stops for pictures and explanations.
At the end of your bike tour you'll proceed to the picturesque Plaka district, Athens' old neighborhood, where you'll enjoy some Greek specialties (Mezedes) accompanied by a glass of Greek ouzo. Before rejoining your bus for the return to your ship, you'll enjoy some free time to stroll through the Plaka’s cobblestone pedestrian lanes lined with boutiques, souvenir stands, jewelry stores and colorful flea market stalls.
