What I can see

This route starts approximately from the Tae Kwon Do arena and ends at the estuary of Pikrodaphne stream. It is a little over 3km long and can be walked in about 45 minutes. In addition to the sea, pedestrians encounter 2 small and 1 large park, a children’s playground for all ages of children, various contemporary sculptures (some created by world-famous artists), sports facilities for football, swimming, athletics, and tennis, the annex of the Maritime Museum with a prominent exhibit of the Battleship Averoff, luxury yachts, Mediterranean green, open air movie theatre, cafes, bars, restaurants, monuments, sculpted waterfront, Paleo Faliro Gallery, Air Force History Museum, beaches with sand or pebbles and, finally, the giant chessboards.

What I can't see

This route is also suitable for running, as the ground does not have steep slopes. However, in some areas, crowds may hamper this type of activity. Similarly, it is safe to ride a bicycle, but the absence of a delineated bicycle path in combination with the crowd in some parts of the route can make cycling challenging. In any case, it is a beautiful route no matter how you travel it. It is also worthwhile to reach the edges of the docks, because the view to the sea and the city is very beautiful.
