On Saturday I had the chance to rediscover my city, Athens with Scooterise. They invited the members of Travel Bloggers Greece to join them in a different tour of Athens.
The day sterted in their offices at 18 Chatzichristou Street, next to Acropolis metro stop by showing us how to use our Trikke. I must admit that I was a little bit afraid in the beginning if I could manage to do it because I don’t drive and the last time I used a bike was at least two decades ago. After the first try I was pleasantly surprised of how easy and fun it was to move around.
Scooterise offers a variety of tours. We did the 2 1/2 hour Athens complete tour. Our first stop was Hadrian’s Arch and the Temple Of Zeus, then we saw the Zappeion Mansion and the Kallimarmaro stadium. After that we headed to the Presidential mansion to see the guards before passing through the National Gardens that led us to Syntagma Square and the Greek Parliament. Our next stop was the bustling Monastiraki square. On our way to Plaka we drove through Monastiraki flea market and saw Handrian’s Library, the Tower of the Winds and the Roman Agora.
The tour covers most of Athens main sites in a fast, fun and informative way. Our guides were very helpful throughout the tour giving us some facts about the sites we were seeing and taking us photos with our cameras. They also took their own photos and videos that later were sent to us by email.
So if you are in Athens and you are short in time, you don’t want to walk a lot or you simply want to do something different and fun you should consider Scooterise. I trully enjoyed myself and I believe its something I would do again in the future.
