Parnitha Mountain / Dekelia Royal estate
A cycling tour through the summer residence of Greece’s former royal family gives the cyclist the chance to visit an estate with a dozen protected structures of unique architecture. In the past, the estate was a self sufficient agricultural and livestock unit.
Passages through pine tree lined streets peppered with mountain streets and cool springs are what a cyclist can anticipate.
We will visit the Kithara source, we’ll enjoy expansive views from the ‘balcony’ of Parnitha overlooking the suburbs and the other surrounding mountains of Athens. We will make a stopover at the gardens of the palace and the royal graves to behold and discover nature’s diversity from rural landscape of dark forests, to green meadows. And all these within a stone’s throw of Athens’ hustle and bustle.
Offered: snack, water, sandwich & juice
