Tour Description

This tour starts at 8:30 am from the cruise terminal in the port of Piraeus and ends at 13:00. Pick up and return to port at 14:00

Meeting point: At the Cruise Arrivals Terminal A. The office representative or tour guide will be waiting and will escort you to the air-conditioned coach to start the tour. If the cruise ship docks in Terminal B, you must take the shuttle bus to come to Terminal A. The bus will be there from 08:00 am and the tour begins at 08:30.

This flexible small group tour is perfect if you want to avoid the crowded cruise ship tours. Our excellently-trained licensed guide will show you the major monuments of Athens and will explain you the brilliant history of the town.

Each group tour will have no more than 18 people. Your tour begins at the cruise terminal in the port of Piraeus, where a representative or tour guide will be waiting for you. You board an air-conditioned minivan and in 30 minutes you are in the centre of Athens.

We enter the city centre going up Sungrou Ave and along the way we will see the most important sites of Athens, including the Temple of Zeus, the Arch of Hadrian that divided the Greek and the Roman part of Athens, the Panathenaic Stadium (short photo stop) which was the home of the first modern Olympic Games, the Parliament, the beautiful Neoclassical building of Numismatic Museum and the wonderful buildings of the Academy and the National Gallery in Panepistimiou Ave. Then we continue onto Stadiou Ave to see the Historical Museum, Syntagma Square and then from Filellinon St we continue towards the Acropolis.

We enter the Acropolis from the southern slopes to avoid the crowds and to see the ancient theatre of Dionysus, the first theatre of the ancient world. As you climb up to the Acropolis, you get great view of Athens. The guide will give you a detailed explanation of the monuments on the Acropolis and other surrounding sightseeing, such as the Theatre of Herodes Atticus, the Ancient Agora and Filopappos Hill. Just opposite the Acropolis Hill, there is the famous New Acropolis Museum.

Then you will have ample time to explore the Acropolis and take pictures. The bus will be waiting at the same point that you get off, at the beginning of the pedestrian walk way of Dionyssiou Areopagitou st, just opposite the Arch of Hadrian. If you choose to remain longer in Athens or if you miss the bus, then you will have to return to Piraeus with your own means. You must be at this meeting point at least 10 min before the departure time because the bus briefly stops to pick up passengers and immediately leaves for Piraeus.
