Tour Description

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

Discover the historical part of Athens in this flexible small group tour and 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.

The 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 coach and in 30 minutes you are in the centre of Athens.

We enter the city centre going up Syngrou Ave and along the way we see the most important sites of Athens, including the Temple of Zeus, the Arch of Hadrian, 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 and Syntagma Square. Then from Filellinon St we continue towards Dionysiou Areopagitou st, where we get off the bus and walk (5 min) towards the Acropolis.

We enter the Acropolis from the southern slopes to avoid the crowds and to see the ancient theatre of Dionysus. 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. Designed by the famous Swiss architect Bernard Tschumi, this museum hosts all the exhibits found on the Holy Rock of the Acropolis and few other items from excavations around Attica. The museum is know for the glass floors and the impressive architect. From the open cafeteria, visitors get fabulous view of the Acropolis Rock.

After the end of the tour at 13:30 pm, the bus will be waiting for you 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.

Note: Due to certain restrictions in the visiting hours of the new Acropolis museum, the order of the program can be changed.
