Dave Briggs – Cycling Athens to Sounion – Day 1 of a 2 Day Bike Tour from Athens


Day 1 of a 2 day bike tour around Athens. This cycling vlog shows the bike ride from Athens to Sounion. During this first day, I cycled into the historic centre of Athens. Here, I caught the tail-end of the Changing of the Guard at the Parliament House, stopped by Hadrian’s Arch, and then had an amazing view of the Acropolis.
As this tour was during February, it was very quiet in Athens when it came to tourists, so as you can see, there were very few people in front of the Acropolis! After here, I then visited Kerameikos cemetery, Technopolis, and then followed a cycle path from Athens to Faliro on the coast. After this, it was simply a matter of following the coastal road to a small village just before Cape Sounion where I stayed the night.
