In front of us there is a wonderful ride under palm trees next to a nice long beach. We go inside the Mega Yacht Marina of Flisvos and alongside the dock that is a traditional spot for Athenians sitting on the rocks with fishing rods.
A ride along the palm trees esplanade is a refreshing portion of our trip. We discover the south part of Athens with very interesting facts happened as it has been shaped in the 19th century.
