Get busy this weekend with a quick hike outside Athens. If you want to walk a bit but not too much, these two places that I’m going to share are just perfect. Leave your comfy house and get some sunshine in. I’m always searching for locations that offer incredible panorama views and these 2 locations are no exception. This is an easy hike of the day in Glyfada and Vouliagmeni.
We put in the GPS and drove until we couldn’t go by car anymore. Reached a plateau area and from there we started walking up to the rocks. There is a group of 3 rocks and I imagine that’s where the name comes from. Spoiler alert, we never found these rocks cause we got off track. In the beginning, there was a clearly defined path until we realized we are fighting the bushes to get to the top. Even so, we did manage to find the amazing view and it’s incredible to see. As I was running near the edge to get some pictures I suddenly started screaming. Something was moving in front of me and to my surprise, it was a tortoise.
After the hike to had a great meal at Aladdin which is a restaurant that offers a perfect fusion of Middle Eastern and Greek food. In the afternoon we relaxed enjoying the sun and sitting on comfy couches at Peñarrubia. This place was perfect to enjoy the sunset.
This hike outside Athens in the region of Vouliagmeni is really easy. You are not going to get lost or trapped in the bushes. The road is wide and the area to walk is also vast. You get a spectacular 360 degrees view. From where we left the car it took only 20 min of walking to reach the top.
We ended up eating again at Aladdin since we enjoyed so much the food the previous day. And after we went to enjoy the sunset and a drink at Riviera Coast. All I can say is that the sunset was even better.
Now that you have an easy hike for the day in Glyfada and Vouliagmeni, I wish you a day full of good vibes, happiness, and peace.
