Athens was a great experience for us. We started exploring the city by joining Athens Free Walking Tour.. what a great start of our day! After the tour we walked Acropolis on our own (did a self-guided tour by Rick Steves). Returned to the port by taking a metro from downtown Athens (a ticket costs 1.40 euros per person). It was quick and easy. Read Less

We took the Jewish Heritage tour with Daniel Isachakis who was beyond wonderful. He was warm, personable and engaging, and so knowledgeable. He first drove us around Athens to see the sites and then took us on an extensive and memorable tour of the Jewish Museum, Synagogues, and holocaust Memorial. After the tour he took us to a local restaurant where we had the most delicious Greek meal imaginable. The next day, Daniel and his father. Haim arranged a driver to pick us up at the port and took us to the Acropolis and Parthenon where he arranged a fabulous tour guide to provide a private and very meaningful insightful tour for us. Then it was onto a couple of hours shopping and walking around the Plaka district. The costs were reasonable. I highly recommend contacting Haim for Athens excursions even if Jewish Heritage tour is not your thing. He steered us right every step of the way. Read Less

We took the metro to Athens. It is about a 20 minute walk from the cruise terminal around the harbor. There is only one line from Prieaus so you cannot get on the wrong train. You do need to know to transfer lines in Onomea so you get get on the line to the Akropoli. Straight walk, about 5 minutes to the Acropolis ticket office. Very easy to do. From there you can see various sights/sites such as Temple of Olympian Zeus, Hadrian's Library, museums, Monastriki and so on. Read Less

For us, better to go on our Own. Cost: 4,80 euro for metro for 5 people two ways instead of paying an excursion. We saved more than 200$ for this day.

Worth visiting for the history. No need to take expansive excursions. The city hop-on hop-off bus tours leave from beside the port and go directly to the Acropolis for much cheaper. There is a very pleasant bar-restaurant Dionysos semi-hidden among trees near the bus stop for the Acropolis where you can have a drink with a wonderful view of the Parthenon after your efforts in climbing up and down the hill.

We stayed at the Hotel Grand Bretagne for one night before the cruise. This hotel was a highlight of our trip. We dined on the roof watching the sun set over the Parthenon.

Athens is easy enough to do on foot if you're willing/able. Getting there can be the trick - we had to haggle heavily with the cabbie outbound, then took the subway back.

We had pre-arranged for a taxi driver we had previously dealt with to take us on a city tour. It was fantastic and he then took us to a lovely restaurant by the water front in Pireaus. One of our best days/best ports of call.

We had visited Athens before, so we decided to concentrate our time in the Parthenon, The Zeus Temple and the Agora. We visited in July, it was really crowded.

Had always wanted to visit Athens for the magnificent ruins and my long wait was well rewarded. Beautiful ancient city. The Acropolis is amazing with lovely views. The old town, Plaka, was good to walk around and buy souvenirs too. We took the new fast bus from the port which provided an excellent service (about 20 minutes from Piraeus) at a cost of just 4.5 euros for a full day travel so excellent value for money too.
