Get acquainted with the Greek capital's most beautiful sites and enrich your cruise or vacation experience. Recorded commentaries in 16 languages will provide historical, cultural, and social information about one of the most ancient capitals of the world.

Blue Line - Piraeus:
Ideal if you have just arrived on a cruise, you can hop on the Blue Line at either of the cruise terminals in the Port of Piraeus, just a stone's throw from your cruise ship. See attractions such as the yacht marina at Pasalimani and the ancient harbour of Mikrolimano. Do not miss out on the impressive new Museum of Acropolis and walk up the hill to admire the Parthenon at the top. The bus takes passengers directly to the most eminent monuments of Athens and Greece.

Orange Line - Athens:
The Orange Line roams by the most beautiful attractions further down the city centre from the Acropolis and Parthenon. Explore the historic Plaka district and discover the most traditional area of Athens. Visit the gate of the Roman emperor Hadrian. See the Temple of Olympian Zeus and admire the largest temple in Greece from Roman times. Go to the Hellenic Parliament on Syntagma Square and look at its impressive guards. Stroll through Ermou to experience the busiest shopping street in Athens. Visit the Panathenaic Stadium, where the first modern Olympic Games were held. Go to the National Library to marvel at an outstanding building of great historical value. Drop by the National Archaeological Museum, or roam around the picturesque area of Monastiraki and its Flea Market. Take a walk through the quaint neighbourhood of Thission.

Yellow Line − Glyfada:
Enjoy a tour of the Athenian Riviera, starting from the Planetarium stop of the Blue Line. Find out how the bewildering desert of the 1900s has evolved into one of the most cosmopolitan areas of Greece. From the Niarchos Foundation to the Marina Alimou, the Yellow Line blends history with the modern. Watch the sunset from Marina Flisvou or swim and sunbathe in Agios Kosmas. From the Glyfada Terminal, you can wander around the most cosmopolitan suburbs of the capital and shop at the luxury department stores. Wind down in a beautiful cafe and do not miss out on the beach bar where you can enjoy a cocktail by the seaside.

Green Line − Vouliagmeni:
Vouliagmeni may be better associated with its beaches, but the area is also a history lesson. From the Allied Forces Cemetery to the Byzantine Museum, Vouliagmeni is certainly worth a visit.

Bus tour fun

Avoid midday, go early or late to save the crowd, other than that a neat low cost easy way to see most of Athens. Get some sun cream if you intend to be on the deck. Water and food is allowed, so all cool.
