Exploring Athens can mean lots of walking and climbing, a stressful endeavor in the Greek sun or if you’re short on time. A hop-on hop-off City Sightseeing bus tour lets you cover more ground in less time, without using any extra energy. View the must-sees, learn their history from the onboard commentary, and hop on and off at the stops that interest you. Plus, explore beyond central Athens on Piraeus or Riviera routes.
What to Expect
Book your preferred tour ticket and board the open-top City Sightseeing double-decker bus at any of the applicable stops. Then, don the provided earphones to learn about the sights you see via commentary.

Choose to stay aboard for the full route, or hop out at any stops to explore by foot. Perhaps explore the ancient temples at the Acropolis, or at the New Acropolis Museum to admire its classical sculptures.

Maybe disembark at Syntagma Square to see the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and stroll through the National Gardens, or widen your sightseeing to the Athens Riviera (depending on selected ticket)—the choice is yours.

Your ticket is valid for 24 or 72 hours from first use, and includes a discount booklet with money-saving offers at selected attractions. Buses run every 15 or 30 minutes depending on the season. See the Itinerary for stops.

The top sights of Athens

This is the best way to see the top sights of Athens. You can get on and off at any stop. This tour goes to the Acropolis. Entrance to the Acropolis is a separate fee. Very good deal for the cost

After exploring some islands my friends and I spent time in Athens and decided that a hop-on/hop-off bus would be a great way to see the city. We chose City Sightseeing Red Bus from our experience in other cities. The audio guide is in many...More

They picked up us at our hotel which was prearranged and took us to the main office. Others met at the main office in downtown Athens.

Hi! I honestly did not try to use my credit card in the attraction as I had cash on me. I’m not sure they accept travel checks as well! You need to double check!
