HIKING

preloader
Athens’ historic centre is ideally suited for long walks. Climb Lycabettus Hill for short city breaks to gaze at the sprawling metropolis at your feet. Take the short drive to the wooded Northern suburbs and follow the foot paths on Parnitha mountain, to the capital’s North. Beautiful hiking spots can also be found in Marathon Shoinias and at the Sounio National Park.


BIKING

Although Athens’ biking infrastructure leaves much to be desired, many of the city’s inhabitants choose to ride, using mostly bus lanes. Seek out Athens’ best biking tours and excursions on www.podilates.gr
