About The Tour
While your cruise ship docks in Piraeus, witness Athens classical highlights on this 5-hours shore excursion.
Recommended for groups of minimum 10 people and Travel Agencies.
Last minute reservations: We do accept reservations up to 24hrs prior the tour.
After your disembarkation from the cruise ship at the Port of Piraeus, you will be welcomed by the representative of GeoTravel. Together you will board the luxury air-conditioned vehicle to start your day.
Starting from the port of Piraeus, you will continue along the coast arriving in Kastela before entering Athens. Arriving in Athens you will see the Panathenaic Stadium or Kallimarmaro, the Zappeion Palace, the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the Arch of Andrianos, the Constitution Square and the Classical Trilogy (Academy of Athens, National Library and University of Athens).
At the end of the city tour you will reach the Acropolis. At the sacred hill of the Acropolis of Athens you will get a chance to explore the graceful Temple of the Parthenon, one of the most famous archeological sites in the world. During your tour you will have the opportunity to get to know the importance of historical monuments, including the Odeon of Herodes Atticus and you will complete the tour in Plaka, the Ancient Agora of Athens.
In the shadow of the Acropolis and its ancient temples, the hillside gives a sense of village, with narrow cobbled streets full of small shops selling jewelry, clothes and handmade ceramics. The sidewalk cafes and family taverns remain open until late, retaining the energy of the past.
Enjoy this unique walk in the narrow streets of Plaka before returning to your ship full of unforgettable memories.
