Tour Description

Departures: Monday to Friday at 03:00pm Tour length: 22 kilometres off traffic Capacity: small intimate groups

From the Acropolis to Faliro this half day tour will take travelers seeking to explore what modern Athens has to offer. A brand new bicycle lane will make your journey smoother than ever and will take you to the Faliro gulf, also known as the Athens Riviera, where you will get the chance to shake off the Mediterranean heat, dive into the blue sea and relax on a sandy beach.

Prior to Piraeus, the port of Athens, Faliro was the first port of the city and the gleaming Acropolis was the metaphor of a lighthouse. Faliro was also the first organized beach available to Athenians of the late 19th century. 
Our Tour will end at a beach bar that will serve you tempting local seafood plates.
