Activities

Hiking

An ideal way to exercise but also to explore, hiking in and around Athens City can lead you to amazing sceneries; the hills of Lycabettus, Filopappou and the neighbouring Mount Parnitha offer numerous hiking opportunities, whereas coastal locations such as Cape Sounio are also favourite destinations for hikers. 

Activities

Sailing

The calm, easy sailing waters of the Saronikos Gulf and the beauty of its coasts and islands make it ideal for a sailing excursion. Starting from one of the many organized marinas of Attica, you can cruise along the coast reaching the quaint islands of Aegina, Poros, Hydra or Spetses and as far as the coasts of Peloponnisos, for an amazing sailing day-trip close to the city of Athens. 

Activities

Open-air cinema

Watching an outdoor movie may sound a bit of a cliché, but the nostalgic sensation of a summertime movie-night with exquisite views to the Acropolis is truly irresistible. The most popular open-air cinema in Athens is Cine-Thisio in the foothills of the Acropolis, whereas the Athens Open Air Film Festival every summer is something to look for when in Athens!

Activities

Cycling
