Active Things To Do in Athens

Should you hit up all ten of our most active activities for active people,you might be very grateful that Athens is a city that keeps the tradition of the siesta.

Our first choice is to head over to Psirri where the good people at Athens By Bike our doling out quality rentals at reasonable rates. For around twenty five euros you can even get one of their pros to cycle Athens with you, showing you the various sites and keeping you on the right paths. Athens Segway is another fun option, said to be quite similar to skiing. Their tours lead you all around the historical center keeping you informed via headsets. Should you prefer to stay on your feet, we can't recommend enough seeing the city through the lens of a camera with a Photography Walking Tour.

Our favorite active things to do in Athens all involve going up, as in trekking up the Attica Mountains like Parnitha and Hymettos by grabbing a tour with Trekking Hellas or scaling the old quarry trail of Pendeli on a unique hike/history lesson. Or down to the seaside at Yabanaki beach where after getting worn out on water skiing and wind surfing the private cabanas are there to restore.

No need to go out of the city if you want to get your heart rate up: walking upward through the neighborhood of Kolonaki all the way to the church of St. George on top of Lykavittos Hill, or a trek up Benaki Street toward Strefi Hill in Exarcheia are both urban hikes worth venturing on.
