The weather was perfect. Other reviews felt there was too much time spent looking out the bus windows but we feel they may have made some adjustments and had photo stops and time built in to walk around the Plaka on your own. The only negative was the visit to the museum should have included use of the "whisper" devices. Read Less

On returning to the ship we were harassed by men trying top sell what they claimed were genuine Apple products, difficult to get rid of them. Read Less

We took the train to the Archeological Museum in Athens. The museum did not open until 1pm, but it was worth the trip.

As we got off the ship, a taxi driver approached us and offered to take us to Athens city centre as the buses were on strike for 25 euros. He then said that if we preferred he take us to the city centre, give us a tour of all the sites we wanted to see and then bring us back again afterwards for 80 euros. We were very dubious but on a whim we went for the tour guide option. It was FANTASTIC! We visited all the sites like the Acropolis, Temple of Olympian Zeus, the changing of the guard outside Parliament, Mt. Lycabettus and Panathenaic Stadium and George explained them all to us. We were able to get out and explore at our place whilst he waited for us. He was so friendly and knowledgeable and we saw far, far more than if we had done a ship excursion or tried to do it ourselves. We have his mobile number should anyone wish to contact him and arrange this for themselves! It was the highlight of our trip. Read Less

We used hop on hop off bus as transport to and from town center. It was right at port. Cruise shuttle was a ridiculous $54 each and you could only stay 2.5 hrs in center. The bus was cheap and reliable to tour town an get off to walk

Excellent tour. We toured Athens landmarks as well as Corinth. This was a long tour and very informative. We were very glad that we got to do it.

We were in Athens for 2 days so the first day we did on our own. We took local transportation to la Plaka and spent the day exploring this old part of town. We had yummy Greek yogurt and honey.

Not a place we ever want to go back to. Once you've seen the Acropolis and the Parthenon and a couple of museums no need to stay there. Definitely an excursion away from Athens is recommended.
