Excellent way to see the sights in Athens! We did the tour towards the end of our trip so had already seen most of the major venues. Our tour guide took that into account and did a great job of showing us another side of Athens that we hadn't seen yet. Really appreciated the personal touch and really great, friendly... More

My family and I traveled to Athens earlier this month and on our first full day did a bike tour with Manos and Demetrios. Biking is a great way to get the lay of the land of a new city, and our guides were super helpful and informative - even giving us tips for the best local eats at the... More

I only had limited time in Athens and was looking for the best option to see as much of the city as possible. I love cycling so when I found this company, I thought it would be a great way to see the city, it was personal, flexible and informative - I recommend this to anyone at any fitness level

There were three of us and 2 other people from the Nederlands and one guy from Australia and we rode in the chilly weather and had a very good time! We saw a sampling of the city centre near the Acropolis, which is a great way to introduce yourself to the city! Demitrius is eloquent and smart and figures out... More

The best means of touring Athens. Incredible tour guide and beautiful stops. You can cover so much of the city on a bike versus by foot. We visited in the winter-January- and it was perfect weather and no crowds. Great tour guide, too!!!

When visiting Athens, we stumbled upon a brochure of this biking tour - me, my mother- & sister-in-law loved it! We were lucky: we were the only three guests in that tour, so we got a tailormade ride. Our guide, a local history student, was besides being fluent in English - also an entertaining and knowledged story teller. We paused... More

Biking in in Athens on a crisp sunny day after a snowfall is something everyone should do. We booked Athens By Bike and when we turned up we found we were the only 2 on the tour. Our guide Dimitris (a local who has a physics degree) was very knowledgeable,friendly and great fun to be with. Along with the history... More

We have a good time cycling and learning. Our guide Kostas was very nice and gave us a good information about the places we where visiting. We visited practically all interesting places in Athens. I recommed this bycicle tour as a good introduction to Athens and its history and culture.

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighborhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianized Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centerpiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
