What to expect

Discover Athens, the Port of Piraeus, and the coastline of the Athenian Riviera at your own pace with a hop-on and hop-off ticket for four different bus lines. Skip the line with our included Acropolis & Parthenon admission.

Explore the Greek capital at your own pace with a hop-on-hop-off bus tour that provides easy transport to key attractions like the Panathenaic Stadium and the Parthenon, part of the Acropolis. You will get the best of 4 lines for two days; Athens, Piraeus, Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, and also visit the Acropolis and Parthenon with the included skip-the-line ticket.

Blue Line – Piraeus. If you are fresh from the cruise, you can start your journey at either of the Cruise Terminals in the Port of Piraeus, just a stone's throw away from the cruise ship. Don't miss out on the impressive new Museum of Acropolis, and walk up to the Acropolis hill to admire the Parthenon.

Orange Line – Athens. The orange line roams by the most beautiful attractions further down the city centre. You may see the Plaka District, the most traditional area of Athens, and mingle with the vibes of ancient Greece. You can also visit the Gate of the Roman emperor Hadrian, and the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the largest temple in Greece during the Roman Times.

Yellow Line − Glyfada. Start your tour of the Athenian Riviera 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 Glyfada Line is a blending of history and modernism. Don't miss out on the beach bar and taste a cocktail by the seaside!

Green Line − Vouliagmeni. Vouliagmeni may have been associated mostly with beaches, but the area is a history lesson on its own. From the Allied Forces Cemetery to the Byzantine Museum, Vouliagmeni Line is certainly worth a visit. Relax at the beautiful beach of Kavouri Oceanis, one of the most popular beaches in Athens.

The ticket also grants you the opportunity to visit the Parthenon by skipping the line with this ticket. With your ticket, you can visit one of the greatest monuments in the world. There you can visit the ancient temples, dedicated to the Greek goddess Athena, including the Parthenon, Erechteion and the Propylaea. For you to do that you will have to get off on our stop "Acropolis" and obtain an extra ticket from one of our staff there to gain access to the Parthenon site.
