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.

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.
