Savvy travelers explore the city by bike and discover that cycling Athens is the best way to go. There's so much to see in the Liverpool of the South that it's best to strike a balance between the must-see attractions and quirky day-to-day Athens.

Just don't forget to venture off the beaten track, and discover the unique Gazi Factory, a former gas factory that was turned into a live industrial museum.
