Full Itinerary

Are you ready to explore Athens from above? Don’t worry, you won’t need to board a plane but instead enjoy a hike from one hill to the other with us to enjoy this tour.

We will walk with you through the city’s highlights whilst helping you to spot dramatic scenes that many visitors miss.

We will start our hike by climbing up Mount Lycabettus, also known as Lycabettos Hill. Standing 277 meters above sea level, Lycabettus Hill is the highest point in Athens. From the top (weather permitting) you can see as far afield as Aegina Island! After all, the myth says that the hill was created by the Goddess of wisdom Athena.

Next, we will venture into the city passing by most of the city’s landmarks. Admire the temple of Olympian Zeus, the Panathenaic Stadium- the stage of the first Modern Olympic Games, Hadrian’s arch, the Odeon of Herodus Atticus, and the Acropolis museum.

Admire from below the extremely photogenic Acropolis of Athens and one of the most popular sites and sights in the world, the iconic Parthenon!

We will move on to the hill of the Areopagus. The Areopagus is a prominent rock outcropping located northwest of the Acropolis in Athens. In classical times, this was the site of the Council of Nobles and the Judicial Court, which mainly dealt with homicide. From here, admire the ancient sights and especially the Ancient Agora, which is located just underneath it.

Finally, we will make our way to the Hill of the Nymphs. This small hill about 100 meters in height, is located to the north point of the green area making up the southwest area of the Acropolis

During our tour, we will have a stop for a much-needed energy drink from organic local vegetables and fruit.

By the end of our tour, you will have explored the most interesting parts of the city while exercising.

Don’t forget to ask us for more hints and tips on how to get the best out of your trip to amazing Athens.
