Biking Tatoi Royal Estate is a full day activity in the former Royal Gardens of Tatoi, just 1 hour away from the center of Athens.
Our guide will meet you at your hotel in Athens in the morning and drive with you to Tatoi.
We will bike along an amazing landscape! We will pass by the old palace, the horse stables, wine cellars, and the royal cemetery. Before returning back to Athens, you will enjoy a delicious Greek handmade picnic prepared with fresh ingredients.
Tatoi is one of the most magical areas in Attica. The Tatoi Royal Estate is located 27 km from the city center. It was once the summer retreat of King George and Queen Olga. The estate served as the royal family’s permanent residence. It included vineyards, vegetable gardens, large expanses of citrus trees and extensive olive groves, stables, a winery and an oil mill.
Although the royal buildings have been abandoned for many years, the area is still beautiful. Our Biking Tatoi Royal Estate is the perfect tour to discover this beautiful part of Attica.
Aleppo pine trees, tall cypresses, poplars, plane trees, beech trees, Greek strawberry trees, olive trees, and citrus trees among others adorn the Tatoi estate! Nowadays it is protected by the Natura 2000 network as an area of outstanding natural beauty.
If you like the tranquility of mountains you can even spend a night or more in nearby Mt Parnitha, at the Bafi Mountain Hut. Your stay can be enriched with other fascinating activities like hiking or biking in Mt.Parnitha.
