Exploring Athens can mean lots of walking and climbing, which is a stressful endeavor in the Greek sun if you’re short on time. A hop-on hop-off City Sightseeing bus tour lets you cover more ground in less time, without using any extra energy. View the must-sees, learn their history from the onboard commentary, and hop on and off at the stops that interest you. Plus, explore beyond central Athens on the Piraeus route.
  • Tour Athens with ease on a hop-on hop-off City Sightseeing bus
  • See highlights such as the Acropolis and hear about them via commentary
  • Opt for the Piraeus tour to see outside central Athens
  • Save with included discounts at local attractions
What to Expect
Book your preferred tour ticket and board the open-top City Sightseeing double-decker bus at any of the applicable stops. Then, don the provided earphones to learn about the sights you see via commentary. Choose to stay aboard for the full route, or hop out at any stops to explore by foot. Perhaps explore the ancient temples at the Acropolis, or at the New Acropolis Museum to admire its classical sculptures. Maybe disembark at Syntagma Square to stroll through the National Garden, or widen your sightseeing outside of Athens on the Piraeus route (depending on the selected ticket)—the choice is yours. Your ticket is valid for 24 or 72 hours from first use, and includes a discount booklet with money-saving offers at selected attractions. See the Itinerary for stops.

We were lucky because they have just started. They opened today after 5 months, running a 30-minute schedule with commentary. Their route is the same as last year all around the archaeological sites but adjusts to the inconvenience of all the newly added gardens, bicycle tracks,

We arrived in Athens on a cruise ship and had only one day to explore Athens. This City Sightseeing Hop-on-Hop Off bus was perfect for us! We grabbed the bright red bus near the port. Riding on the top deck, we toured Piraeus first, seeing the beaches, the marinas, and all
