See the ancient sites and popular attractions of Athens—including the Temple of Zeus, Planetarium, and the Archeological Museum of Piraeus—on this hop-on hop-off bus shore excursion, a stress-free option for visitors with limited time. Enjoy views from the open-top bus, hear onboard commentary, and spend as much time as you’d like at each stop along multiple routes. Choose a ticket for one to four days of exploration, adding extra flexibility.
What to Expect
Your sightseeing shore excursion starts at Syntagma Square for the Athens Line or the Cruise Terminal for the Piraeus Line. A third route, “Beach Rivera,” is available April through October. Hop on the waiting open-top, double-decker bus, and head out for an overview of the city.

Get off at the stops that interest you most, exploring sights like the Temple of Zeus, National Gardens, and Archaeological Museum of Piraeus. Then, just reboard a new bus when you’re ready to move on. Buses depart roughly every 30 minutes, so you won’t have to wait long for another one.

Learn about noteworthy site from onboard audio commentary, available in several languages. Tickets are valid for unlimited rides for one, two, or three days.

Probably the most expensive

Paid for the Athens tour to Acropolis and beyond, on the red hop on hop off bus, probably the most expensive at 22 euros each although you could travel all day. Watch your hats if travelling on the top deck as gets very windy. You...More

Athens City Sightseeing is a must when visiting the city

The bus tour is great and gives a visitor a great overview of the city layout. By far the best experience I had was the free walking tour that started at the Acropolis stop and went all around the city. If anyone is interested in...More

Dimitris Karalis's free walking tours alone are the price of the ticket! The Bus is great too!

The Red hop-on and hop-off bus tour is a wonderful, convenient and inexpensive way of seeing all of Athens, the beautiful shoreline and the ports for a couple of days. But it is the free walking tour that makes this truly valuable. Dimitris Karalis is...More

I’m sorry that I can’t answer that one. I didn’t travel to Piraeus. I’m sure that the reception staff in your hotel will be able to help. Also, if you google ‘how do I get from Omonia to Piraeus?’ you’ll get bus & metro... More
