Detailed description

Hop-on hop-off city tour in Athens - flexible sightseeing in a red double-decker bus

If you want to explore as much as possible in a short time in the Greek metropolis, but don't want to miss out on individual preferences, the athens hop-on hop-off route is just the right thing for you. The 3 routes, with a total of 37 stops near places worth seeing in Athens, Piraeus and on the Riviera, can be arranged flexibly. For example, get off at the Acropolis, go on a time travel into antiquity in the "upper city" and then simply get back on, because the bus runs on the routes at regular intervals.

The Athens route takes you to all the highlights. A tip: Drive a complete lap to get an overview with the help of the autoguide and then decide which places you would like to have a closer look at afterwards. You are completely flexible for at least 24 hours (depending on the option booked). You will discover Athens and its surroundings according to your own ideas, but with the help of predefined routes. City Sightseeing also offers you a tour in English (audio guide in several languages). A special highlight is that the upper part of the bus has a convertible top and you can experience the city tour in Athens "open-air". The Greek capital has so much to offer. Hop off at the beautiful National Garden, formerly the Royal Garden, and enjoy the idyllic green oasis in the middle of the city. Admire the remains of the Temple of Zeus (Olympieion) with its imposing columns rising into the sky. Visit the National Archaeological Museum to learn more about Greek antiquity and stroll around the famous Syntagma Square where the Greek Parliament building is located. You should also make a stop at the impressive Panathinaiko Stadium. It was the venue of the first Olympic Games of the modern era in 1896 and offered space for more than 50,000 people. Discover the sights of Athens comfortably, cheaply and uncomplicatedly and enjoy a 360° panoramic view of the city from the upper deck of the double-decker bus. There are 15 hop-on hop-off Athens stops to explore the centre.

City Sightseeing in Athens by bus has even more to offer. Connect the Athens route with 2 other routes and also visit Piraeus and the beaches of the Athens Riviera. Especially as a cruise passenger you can start the city tour in Athens from Piraeus and be brought directly to the metropolis. But even the third largest Mediterranean port has its very own charm and many beautiful corners that attract visitors. For example, hop off at the ancient port of Mikrolimano and marvel at the numerous fishing boats and yachts. Here you will find the best fish restaurants of the city, which invite you to feast afterwards.

If you choose the Athens city tour in combination with the Riviera Beach Route, you can stop for a relaxing swim during the sightseeing or just stroll along the beaches and enjoy the fresh sea breeze, the sound of the waves and the lovely atmosphere. Those who want to escape from the hustle and bustle of the big city can immerse themselves in a wonderful beach idyll. Many of the beaches have been awarded the Blue Flag. As you can see, the flexible exploration tour by bus leaves nothing to be desired. It is one of the perfect Athens day tours to see all the interesting sights.
