Athens is very easy to navigate on your own. I wish I had spent a few more days exploring the city! We took a taxi to the port, booked by our hotel.

We got off the boat rather late...like 11AM and there were no taxis because they were on strike. Apparently this happens a lot. We got a private driver (named Labros) to take us to the Acropolis and arranged to have him pick us up at 3pm. The round trip cost E100. We found a private guide to walk with us (cost E130) and didn't have to stand in line for tix. After a hour in the hot sun, we strolled down toward the city and found an excellent restaurant called The Old Tavern of the Fisherman. It was excellent. We did not arrange any of this through the ship, just played it by ear. It was obviously more expensive than going through the ship, but we like the flexibility to do our own thing and it worked out great. Read Less

Took the X80 Express Bus from the port to the Plaka area. $4.50 return. The bus took about 30 minutes through the city busy with scooters and traffic. Once in the Plaka area, there are pedestrian only streets with shops and numerous restaurants to enjoy lunch. The buses ran quite frequently with stops at Acropolis. Read Less

I arranged a tour with PK Tours for a full day tour of Athens. Great tour and we went to the Parthenon first and beat some of the crowds.

We walked outside the port and a taxi driver offered to take us to different places for 80euros. We were unsure of whether we should do this or not but someone on the ship had said this happens and is quite safe, so we thought why not. We had a great day sightseeing with the taxi dropping us off and then picking us up and taking us to our next destination all over Athens. Read Less

Head out early to beat the crowds by grabbing a taxi, heading to the Acropolis and then walking around to all the other tourist sites. Its easy and fun to navigate through the tourist areas. or you can get on the Hop on Hop off bus.

We took the green metro to the opposite end of the Acropolis and it was much quieter than the main entrance. Lovely outlook from the coffee shops on the way and some stalls with reasonably priced souvenirs. As we approached the queue for tickets, we looked up at the Acropolis and could see it looked a difficult walk up and I'm not very good with steps etc. So we walked around the surrounding area and just enjoyed the views.

We booked our own driver through Greek Tours. Kostas drove us around Athens, explaining things while driving, and ensuring that we got to see all the major sites in Athens.

We took a taxi to the Acropolis very early in the morning. We opted to get the expensive ticket at the Acropolis ticket booth that got us in to multiple other historic sites across town. I believe it came out to be over 100 Euros total. The views of Athens and Piraeus from the Acropolis were simply breathtaking. We really enjoyed walking around the grounds of the Parthenon, Temple of Athena Nike, The Erechtheion, Theatre of Dionysus, and the Odeon of Herodes Atticus. We spent several hours at the Acropolis before leaving. By the time we left around lunch time, the line at the ticket booth had hundreds of people in it. We didn't even wait in line early in the morning. We walked to the site of Hadrian's Arch and the Temple of Olympian Zeus. This structure was absolutely huge! It was simply amazing to walk around at sites that are over 2400 years old. From there we walked to the Athens Hard Rock Cafe for lunch. After lunch and some shopping in the Plaka we also visited the Roman Agora and the Horologion of Andonikos of Kyrrhos. I wish we would have had more time to go to a couple of the museums but we had to get back to the ship. Read Less

we got off at Terminal B! The bus is just outside the terminal, takes you directly to the Acropolis. Get there early to avoid the ship buses. Get tickets to and from. Get the 30$ package, not the 20$ to be able to enter all the sites.
