Itinerary

Basic Itinerary:
- Pick From the port
- Drop off at Sytagma Metro Station
- Tour in Stygma
- Acropolis Visit
- Free time in plaka
- Drive back to the port

When does my tour start?
This tour has a set departure time of 08:45am; meeting time 8:30 am

When do I return to port after my tour/excursion?
We schedule your return to port to ensure you arrive in plenty of time to re-join your ship - normally 1 hour before the scheduled sailing time. Where you have free time after the end of your tour, then it is your responsibility to ensure you re-join the ship on time.

All tour times are based on Shore time (ie local time, - not ship time)

Your guide will meet you at the cruise port of Piraeus and will escort you to your air-conditioned transportation ready to commence your tour.

The tour begins inside the Syntagma metro station where you will visit the metro Museum (in 10 minutes) with very interesting archaeological artefacts from the daily life of Ancient Athens that came to light during the construction of the metro. You will then continue to the House of the Greek Parliament, the Monument to the Unknown Soldier and watch the changing of the guards.

Your tour continues towards the National Gardens and on to the beautiful neoclassical Zappeion Hall, in front of which tower the surviving columns of the Zeus Temple and Hadrian’s Arch, both of which you will have the opportunity to visit. From there you walk towards the Acropolis through the beautiful pedestrian walk way of Dionyssiou Areopagitou and you pass by the Melina statue.

You will enter the Acropolis from the south slope to avoid the crowds and to visit the Dionysus sanctuary and Dionysus Theatre built in the 5th century BC. Your guide will take care of the tickets, so you can skip the line. As you begin to ascend the sacred hill a breath-taking view of the city below will unfold. Your guide will give you a detailed explanation of the glorious monuments of the Acropolis such as, the Parthenon, the Erectheion, the Propylaia, the Nike Temple, the Agrippa Monument and the surrounding monuments such as the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, the Ancient Agora, the Observatory as well as the Philopappos, Mars, and Pnyx Hills.

The tour ends at the Acropolis, here you will have free time before your return to the Cruise Port

Included: Return Transfers, Acropolis guided Tour, Tour Guide, Free Time in Plaka

Not included: Food and Drinks, Gratuities (Gratuities in Greece are around 10% of service cost), Entrance Fees to Acropolis and Temple of Zeus are not included and to be paid locally (26 Euro per person)
