What to expect

What's the point of visiting Athens without seeing the Acropolis? This is a must-see attraction, a special place.

It only takes 40 minutes from the Piraeus to reach the Acropolis of Athens. This is where Greek history - and more - began. There's nothing here that hasn't been central to European history, art and culture. Commissioned by Pericles, built by Phidias and dedicated to the goddess Athena, the Acropolis is a charming and imposing construction. Listen to the guide to learn everything about Ancient Greece.

After visiting the Acropolis you will have free time to visit the modern Athens and the typical Plaka district. Thanks to the guide's suggestions you will be able to uncover shops, bars and restaurants among the narrow streets.

From here you'll set back to the ship (30 minutes).

Visited sites:

  • Athens (sightseeing coach tour)
  • Acropolis
  • Plaka district (free time)

Why should cruise-lovers choose Musement?

  • Because we always provide a multilingual guide (Italian, English, French, Spanish and others)
  • Because a small group tour offers you a completely different experience than a large group
  • Because ours is a real Tour (with a capital T)
