Adventure Activities Athens

The Greek capital city of Athens is an eclectic metropolis with one foot in the 21st century and another in the Before-Christ era. The question of what to do in Athens can never be easily answered - there are simply so many Athens points of interest. Over the years, the Romans, the Byzantines, and the Ottomans have left their architectural footprint in Athens. Centuries later, those very places have turned into great places of attraction and hubs for exciting activities.

Here are some of the most interesting things to do in Athens.

1. Climbing to the hilltops

The city of Athens is blessed with a diverse topography and thus has a number of hills which can be climbed up for a brilliant view from up there – from the pretty city on the land to the azure blue of the sea. One can take an entire day of hiking in Athens to enjoy climbing the different peaks the city has to offer. Other than the main Acropolis Hill, there is also the Filopappou Hill which overlooks the port of Piraeus. Vrahakia is the summit of the Areopagus Hill at the entrance of Acropolis. But the highlight of the trekking adventure would be up to the Lycabettus Hill, the highest peak in Athens. It looks over the entire city of blues and beiges. Heavenly is the word to describe how it looks from the top of Lycabettus Hill during sunset. It is one of the most exciting and fulfilling things to do around Athens.

2. See changing of the guards at Syntagma Square

The central Syntagma Square, dotted with numerous shops, outdoor cafes, and diners, also hosts a military performance by the Evzones – a ceremonial unit of Greek military. At the strike of every hour, a new unit comes down from Vasilissis Sofias Avenue from their barracks on Irodou Attikou and releases the previous guards from their posts. The manner in which they perform the march resembles an intricate form of performing arts and is witnessing it with the crowds is a fun thing to do in Athens. The show is a bigger one on every Sunday at 11 am.

3. Scuba diving and shipwreck diving along the Aegean Sea

Although not the most popular activities, water sports in Athens is certainly a rewarding one. The crystal blue of the Aegean Sea across the Attica Peninsula hides stretches of coral reefs and shipwrecks to explore. The Kalypso Reef in Saronida and the shipwrecks of SS Portugal and Apollonia II in Makronisos Island are a couple of popular spots. The beaches in Marousi, Varkiza, and Lagonisi have good places for scuba diving in Athens. Cape Sounion, known for the Temple of Poseidon is also among the top in the list.

4. Meet the poet-shoemaker Stavros Melissinos

The writer of many published poems and maker of Grecian sandals, Stavros Melissinos, is a legend of Athens. Meeting him in his small shoe shop, across Monastiraki Square would be the most unusual thing to do in Athens, Greece but you will regret it later if you don’t. His best-known work “The Rubaiyat” is taught at American and European universities, and his sandals have been worn by many Hollywood superstars. Who would not like to buy a sandal that even John Lennon had loved?

5. Taking a walk in Plaka

Not every activity has to be something exciting. Plaka in the Acropolis area is the oldest neighborhood in Athens. One can roam through the streets of Plaka shaded by colorful buildings and flower plants, do some shopping in Athens from the kitschy boutique shops, have a drink at the outdoor cafes, watch an outdoor movie at Cine Paris or take a glimpse of the old churches here and there. Walking in Plaka is your own time to spend in whichever way you like.

    Ramkicrn's 7 days trip to Athens

    Took a week long family trip to Greece planned by Ishita and executed by Ishan from MTP vacations. Overall great experience. Pros: Ishita from sales side was quite flexible in tailoring our trip to Greece and accommodated most of my inputs towards locations, length of stay, hotels etc., Quote g
    iven was quite competitive compared to peers. Ishan from operations side stayed on top of our itinerary throughout our stay providing pickup co-ordinates, driver and stay details. Got us upgraded to better travel modes as needed to ensure our schedules won't go astray, made us positively surprised and appreciated. Was available on phone, chat through the stay to ensure our travel experience is not compromised. Cons/Improvement areas: Minor discomforts were to wait for end of the day to know exact details of next day's plans.. Though nothing went off-track majorly, couple of schedule changes were done (of course for a better experience), but weren't communicated till late. While we were able to take it in our stride and play along, might not be the case for others . Both the above are more for ppl who don't like surprises in schedules, especially bit older travelers. Sales team were able to accommodate my asks on locations, however would be great if they are forthcoming with such family friendly options for uninitiated travelers. But Overall lovely family vacation enabled by MTP team!! Keep up the good work...

    isted end to end by Vishal Thakur. It was a really an awesome experience and very smooth everywhere. Everything went very well as planned and mentioned in itinerary. Vishal - Thanks a lot for arranging this wonderful trip and coordinating with me from beginning of trip plan to end of the journey. Vishal was very much patience and very good in handling the customer and to achieve the customer utmost satisfaction and did it very well in my case. Not but not the least , TRAVEL TRIANGLE - My initial impression was bit mixed feeling to proceed with Travel Triangle for the trip (because I didnt approach through any referral, I just got it from Google with some positive reviews). But getting in touch through calls and and drafting my honeymoon plan with my travel agent Vishal my perspective is entire changed and fully satisfied. Definitely, I will consider Travel Triangle for my next International trip for sure. I am giving 5 out of 5 stars rating for the entire trip and especially for travel agent Vishal. Please continue the same.

    One of the first things someone looks for while hiring an agent is TRUST TRUTH AND SINCERITY. I must point say Prashant and Rohit from HUB HOLIDAYS went an extra mile to give us COMFORT, CONFIDENCE and COMMITMENT. An expert in their domain, helped us all along. asking for changes including the ones
    even during the trips! They were up for the challenge and went an extra mile even at 4 am in the morning. I wish them best of luck and would recommend them to one n all. 11 on 10 from our side. Much appreciate all the effort ☺️☺️

    This holiday was planned in a very short span of time. Special thanks to Rohit and Prashant in helping us out get the best deals throughout the trip. They were always available on call and whatsapp even during the entire duration of the trip. I am sure even if I had self planned the trip it couldn’t
    have been better than this. Greece is a beautiful country and there are plenty things to explore. We had a mix of adventure, history and romantic destinations on our itinerary. In all it was a good trip. Athens to Mykonos cruise trip.

    Karanjain's 8 days trip to Athens

    Everything was nice and comfortable out there. Just couple of points I felt could have been better :- 1. Hotel Marina:- This Hotel is very poor hotel for us to stay. Hotel rooms were very small; they provided room with 2 single beds for a couple; toilets were very dirty; location of the hotel was ba
    d. I think you should provide a better hotel going forward. Just to mention , hotels at Myconos and Santorini were the best! We enjoyed our stay there. 2. Local Transfers:- Please have the option to include local transfers- hotel to ferry and vice versa etc. This costed us a lot and a bit of hassle. 3. Delos Tour:- Inclusions say that it includes transfers/entry tickets however we were asked to pay 12Euro each for the entry. This could have been included in the overall cost to avoid confusion. Hotels at Myconos and Santorini were too good for the location.
