It poured all day. We got to the Acropolis and the museums easily by taking the local trains and walking. The weather definitely dampened our experience and we didn't get to enjoy it as much as we'd hoped but we saw some amazing

The Acropolis was amazing. The city itself was a bit of a let down. There was graffiti everywhere. It was a shame.

Had a great excursion except the tour guide wasn't clear on our departure location & 3 of us had to catch a taxi back to port.

We took the hop on/hop off bus to the Acropolis. Don't waste your time. The metro is right in the port and goes right to the Acropolis and will be much more convenient and cheaper. We also pre-ordered Acropolis tickets through a local company and that saved us having to line up to purchase tickets. It was a bit tricky finding our way to the pick up spot, but it was still a good timesaver. Don't miss the Acropolis! It's amazing. Read Less

* After disembarking and sorting out our luggage with the porter, we went outside looking for our pre-arranged transport to our downtown Athens hotel. The driver was there waiting for us and off we went. We were staying at the Athens Status Suites Hotel at 28 Petraki, a small side street in the Plaka area; the hotel has been fully renovated looking very modern and quite well decorated, the room was very ample with very high ceilings and the bathroom was also large but with some issues peculiar to the Greek hotel industry so there is no reason to write about it; on the top floor there is a restaurant, where breakfast (incl.) was served, with an splendid view of the Acropolis and a roof top bar one level higher. Regardless all this glowing description we still do not recommend this hotel because 1) it was on a small, narrow side street, 2) the only elevator was too small and 3) the staff at the reception although polite and eager did not provide good advice or information, such that it was very clear they didn’t know their city well at all. The best area (we found out ourselves) to look for a hotel is in the New Archeological Museum district and near the subway as that is the best transport to use to move around the city and avoid wasting time finding directions etc. A visit to that Museum is a must (10 euros pp) and you can have lunch in its restaurant that has expansive windows looking up to the nearby Acropolis hilltop. The center of Athens is in complete chaos with a huge number of people (tourists), cars, vans, bicycles and motorcycles, coming, going, crossing, honking etc. and all this happening on narrow and uneven streets; a completely disorganized city. This was a real surprise because the last time in Athens (a couple of years ago) it was a completely different and more manageable place to visit and enjoy. Read Less

We picked a HOHO bus but it did a scenic coastal route so took an hour to get to Athens when we would have preferred to go straight there as it's 15mins from Pireous. The commmentary was out of sync with what we were seeing and once we got to the Acropollis and Plaka and did our sightseeing it wasn't easy finding the HOHO bus stop to take us back to the ship. However, the Acropollis itself was worth the trip. We had booked a shore excursion to take us direct to Athens but we weren't told of a change in time of the coach leaving so missed the coach but P&O gave us a refund. Read Less
