About The Tour
While your cruise ship docks in Piraeus, witness Athens classical highlights on a 5-hour guided shore excursion with a special price of 20€.
After disembarkation from your cruise ship in Piraeus port, you are welcomed by α GeoTravel representative. Joining other cruising passengers you will board on our air-conditioned coach to start your journey. Our Shore excursion starts approx. 1.5 hrs after the arrival of the cruise ship at the port.
Departing from the Piraeus port you will continue along the cost, reaching Kastela before entering Athens. Driving through Athens you will see The Panathenaic Stadium or known as Kallimarmaro, Zappeio Mansion, Temple of Olympian Zeus, Adrian’s Arc, Constitution and the Classical Trilogy (Athens Academy, National Library and Athens University).
At the end of the sightseeing you will reach Acropolis. At the Holly Hill of Acropolis of Athens, you will explore the graceful and enduring Parthenon which is one of the most famous Archaeological sites in the world. During your tour, you gain an insight into the significance of its historic monuments including the Odeon of Herodes Atticus and you will end the tour in Plaka, the Ancient Agora. In the shadow of the Acropolis and its ancient temples, hillside Plaka has a village feel, with narrow cobblestone streets lined with tiny shops selling jewelry, clothes and local ceramics. Sidewalk cafes and family-run taverns stay open until late, preserving the energy of the past.
Enjoy this unique stroll through the narrow roads of Plaka before you return to your ship.
