Hop on Hop Off Classic tour of Athens
From US$14,88
Low Price Guarantee
Explore Athens at your own pace with a hop-on hop-off bus tour that provides easy transportation to key attractions like the Panathenaic Stadium and the Parthenon, part of the Acropolis. Travel across two interchanging lines—the Blue and the Orange—plus enjoy access to/from the port in Piraeus for cruise passengers.
What to Expect
Orange Line:
Visit the Acropolis and Parthenon, the highlights of the city! The orange line roams by the most beautiful attractions further down the city centre. You may see the Plaka District, the most traditional area of Athens, and mingle with the vibes of ancient Greece. At Syntagma square, you can admire the Hellenic Parliament with its impressive guard line. Feel free to explore the Panathenaic stadium, where the first modern Olympic Games were held. Roam around or the Temple of Zeus or the picturesque area of Monastiraki and its Flea Market.
Blue Line - Piraeus:
If you are fresh from the cruise, you can start your journey at either of the cruise Terminals in the Port of Piraeus, just a stone's throw away from the cruise ship. You may admire attractions such as Pasalimani, the yachts’ marina, and Mikrolimano, the ancient harbour of Piraeus. Don't miss out on the impressive new Museum of Acropolis, and walk up to the Acropolis hill to admire the Parthenon.
Yellow Line − Glyfada:
Start your tour to the Athenian Riviera from the Planetarium stop of the Blue Line. Find out how the bewildering desert of the 1900s has evolved into one of the most cosmopolitan areas of Greece! The Glyfada Line is a blending of history and modernism. Enjoy the sunset from Marina Flisvou, or swim and sunbathe in Agios Kosmas. In the Glyfada Terminal, you may wander around the most cosmopolitan suburbs of the capital, enjoy the luxurious department stores and wind down in the beautiful cafes. Don't miss out on the beach bar and taste a cocktail by the seaside!
Green Line − Vouliagmeni:
Vouliagmeni may have been associated with the beaches, but the area is a history lesson on its own. From the Allied Forces Cemetery to the Byzantine Museum, Vouliagmeni Line is certainly worth a visit. Relax at the beautiful beach of Kavouri Oceanis, one of the most popular beaches in Athens. Vouliagmeni Lake, one of the most popular spots in Athens, is a wonder of natural beauty. Don’t miss out on a jump into the thermal baths and admire the breathtaking surroundings.
Mini Fun Train:
The Piraeus Fun Train is carefully designed to take you to all the Piraeus famous sights and Piraeus main shopping area. Just 2 minutes from the main Arrival Gates, the Fun Trains are waiting for you to hop on and explore Piraeus.

If you plan on getting off, you will not get on the same bus later. I would not bring luggage if you can avoid it.
