Enjoy the cities of Athens and Piraeus from the top of a yellow double-decker get-on get-off bus that affords you an excellent opportunity to take in the amazing architecture, history and culture of these cities.
The Athens Route Terminal is located at Syntagma square and the Piraeus Route starting point is right at the Cruise Ship Terminal. There is also an Interchange bus stop at the Acropolis.
In Athens, you’ll find a city full of historical and cultural monuments and sights; however, it is a must to visit the Acropolis and Parthenon archaeological site where you will feel the energy of the whole region. Those who get-off on this route can visit the new Acropolis museum, the Archaeological museum and the picturesque area of Plaka and Monastiraki, full of neoclassical buildings, archaeological findings and souvenir shops.
