Bike & Hotel Athens and Surroundings: Athens is one of the oldest cities in the world! Its geographical position has greatly influenced the entire ancient Greek culture. The city of Athens lies in a plain and is surrounded by small and larger mountains. The highest mountain is Mount Parnitha (1,443 m of altitude), followed by Mount Hymettos (1,026 m of altitude) and many smaller hills such as the Pnyx, the Acropolis and the Philopappos. Biking on the historic trails in and around Athens is a true journey through history as the trails lead into a very modern city that has been planted at the same place for thousands of years.
The aim of this bike week in Athens and its surroundings is to combine urban life with mountain life. A difficult combination made possible by the favorable geographical location of Athens. The acropolis and the ancient agora in the center of the city, lively places where ancient and modern Athenians met and meet, are the perfect contrast to our mountain bike tours. But even far from the city you will always find fascinating historical references: for example, from these mountains comes the marble from which the Parthenon and the ancient statues originated. The wood from which ships were built for campaigns over the centuries came from Mount Parnitha.
On our journey through time, you will experience Athens not from a tourist perspective, but with an insider's view, and thus get to know the city both historically and presently, and see how bright the future of Athens looks. Where once the ancient Greeks lived and wrote world history is now a cosmopolitan city worth discovering!
