See the ancient sites and popular attractions of Athens—including stops at the Temple of Zeus, Planetarium, and the Archeological Museum of Piraeus—on this hop-on hop-off bus tour shore excursion, a stress-free option for visitors with limited time. Visit the sites at your own pace with unlimited hop-on and off privileges during the time period you select. From April to October, a “Beach Riviera” line is added.
What to Expect
Your sightseeing shore excursion starts at Syntagma Square for the Athens Line or the Cruise Terminal for the Piraeus Line. Choose to hop on the Athens or Piraeus Line, or the Beach Riviera Line if you’re in Athens from April to October.

From there, hop on the waiting open-top, double-decker bus, and get underway. The shore excursion offers an overview of the city while giving you the opportunity to get a closer look at a few—or more—particular attractions.

Jump off the bus at whatever stop you prefer and explore sites like the Temple of Zeus, National Gardens, and Archaeological Museum of Piraeus. Buses depart roughly every 30 minutes, so you don’t have to wait long for another one.

The buses have onboard audio commentary available in several languages. Tickets are valid for unlimited rides for one, two, or three days.

Worth. Every. Penny!

Our hotel staff recommended this activity and it was such a good idea. There is a bus stop located 5 steps away from our hotel and the bus comes every hour. The price was cheap for a tour of Athens and Piraeus. Although in certain...More

Great way to see Athens in a short time

I only had a couple of hours in Athens so this was a great way to see the landmarks in a nutshell. I would definitely use the service again as a way hopping off to see the sights in depth. The audio loop is very...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
