Again we did the HOHO bus. It was convenient and we got a nice overview of the city. We walked quite a bit and stopped for a nice lunch.

The old museum is excellent. The churches are worth having a look at for their beauty- just remember to be appropriately dressed in Greece! We had a wonderful lunch at terrific restaurant on the waterfront with delicious Greek food. We ... Read More
The old museum is excellent. The churches are worth having a look at for their beauty- just remember to be appropriately dressed in Greece! We had a wonderful lunch at terrific restaurant on the waterfront with delicious Greek food. We took the little train but did not get value as we walked all the way back to the ship. Piraeus is the one place we found to have our VAT type dockets stamped by customs- no other ports seem to have stands available. You get the port bus over to the other terminal. It takes a bit of mucking around, but the customs people are really nice and helpful there. Read Less

As we had spent some time in Athens recently we decided to go from the port into the city by public transport. Luckily there was a local bus stop very close to the ship which was express to the city. Once there we did a self guided walking tour, and enjoyed wandering in this fascinating place, full of ancient remains. Glancing up to see the Parthenon from many different angles is thrilling. The Plaka area is great to walk around, very vibrant and full of life. It was easy to hop on the bus again after our wanderings for a quick ride back. Read Less

Again we decided to explore on our own. I am so glad we did! There was a bus top for the express bus X80 right outside the cruise terminal. It cost 4.50 euro each and was food for 24 hours. It took us right near the Acropolis. We tried to ... Read More
Again we decided to explore on our own. I am so glad we did! There was a bus top for the express bus X80 right outside the cruise terminal. It cost 4.50 euro each and was food for 24 hours. It took us right near the Acropolis. We tried to get there before all the crowds and got about halfway through the sites before all the tour groups came. Still amazing to see! A must do if you are in Athens. I had found some shops through my research that I wanted to go to. We mapped it out and found the shop where a man hand makes chess and backgammon sets from olive wood. Then we found the Sandal Poet who has been making sandals for decades. Picked out a pair and had them fixed especially for my feet while we waited! We explored more on our own, had a nice lunch and took the express bus right back to our ship! Read Less

We took the hop on hop off bus which took us straight to the Acropolis there was a bit of a que to pay. It is not the safest place to walk around if you have walking difficulties but well worth a visit. We then caught the bus into Placa and explored there before getting the buys back to the port.

A fair walk from the ship but a bustling busy city worth a visit. Port area very clean and organised. Claim my discount offered for a return beer in the port cafe. Lovely place with good food.

Acropolis was nice but the new Museum was even better. The ride from the port and back was done with taxi. It was pleasant and fast. Try eating in the back streets, cause the touristy area are expensive.

Ive already been to the Acropolis so did the hop on/off of Athens. Another city that doesn't have much to recommend other than the main tourist spots. Plaka district was closed on Sunday we were there.
