Athenian Riviera By Bike
The Coastal Route* takes you down Athens’ Southern coast and ends at the beach – be sure to bring your swim suit! En route you’ll visit the once mighty Averof, now a naval museum, the chic Flisvos Marina, home to some of the swankest yachts in Athens, and you’ll finish it all off with a visit to a seaside taverna.
