We stayed in Athens for three days prior to boarding the ship. Loved the sights and the feel of Athens. The Amalia Athens hotel was a perfect location to walk or take the Hop On-Hop Off bus.

We disembarked here but took a half day trip around Athens including the Acropolis with Skip the Line tickets already arranged and with the driver. Fantastic trip and the driver/tour guide was very informative, funny and safe. He dropped us off at our pre-arranged hotel just in time for check in. Would recommend Athens Shore Excursions for all tour needs. Picked us up in Mercedes Mini Van and it was very comfortable and fit all our luggage too. Read Less

We spent a couple of days in Athens prior to the cruise, which we organised our self. Our hotel was in the city and is only a short cab fare to the Port (around Euro25).

We purchased the Hop On and Off Bus. One of the stops was the Acropolis, a must see. We were also able to visit the Temple of Zeus. Port time is limited. Recommend selecting a couple sites, shop, and dine!

The Acropolis was extremely over crowded and hot but you cannot go to Athens and not visit. The views are incredible

Own tour - we booked a Segway tour, Acropolis tour, city tour, and a traditional Greek taverna for dancing. Loved Athens, very clean and would love to return.

Stayed in AirBnB apartment prior to and after cruise. A dusty city in need of graffiti removal but fascinating and worth the time to explore around. Everywhere you turn you'll see amazing ruins that are thousands of years old! Greek food is tasty and filling, and affordable. City is very walkable if you stay within 15 - 20 minutes of the Acropolis. Go to Acropolis at 8am, and buy tickets the night before if possible. Busloads of tourists arrive around 9:30 and it gets very crowded. We used Rick Steve's audio guide/free to walk around the Acropolis and it was great. Read Less

We were approached by taxi drivers wanting up to $200 to drive us to Acropolis and wait for us, we declined even when price dropped to $120. We got local bus right near port to acropolis $3. As we had not pre booked tickets for entry there was a really long que. We were approached by local tour guide who can buy your tickets and do her tour for extra $20 on top of the price of entry. We chose to do this option as it got us in quicker. It was 40deg and so busy. We then walked around Plaka historic neighbourhood. Read Less

Awful courier and disgusting lunch. Wish we had not done this trip. A bit of a waste of money for a hugely over priced excursion.

My husbands favorite tour. He wants to live here . The age of the temple is mind blowing. The poet Byron left his mark on one of the columns.

We booked a day tour with Private Greek Tours - Nikos and his team were very professional. We had a great driver and a clean, new touring van. We also hired a tour guide from The Travel Insiders to provide us with insight at the Acropolis and other Greek sites. This was a wonderful day filled with a lot of information. Our guide worked well with the driver to get us close to the back entrance to the Acropolis. He also picked us up there to shorten our walk down. There is a lot of walking there. We also went to see the changing of the guards and walked through Plaka. It was an amazing tour we will not soon forget. Read Less

Greek people are so wonderful. They were so welcoming and seemed happy to have tourists. There were so many people there ready to help, happy and proud to share their city. Our ship left from there so we stayed a couple days. We stayed in Koukaki, a safe area in walking distance of The Acropolis and Plaka. Don't miss Anatiofika! It's in between The Acropolis and Plaka - small little neighborhood, like a postcard, quaint, and so beautiful. Find the little church in Anatiofika with the Greek flag and you'll see the most amazing view of Athens from there! The taxis in Athens can be sketchy. We took a transfer from the airport which worked great and was the same price as a taxi. Even though we had a delayed/diverted/cancelled flight, Athens Airport Taxi/run by Emma followed our changes, always responded to each communication immediately and took care of us. We were also happy that Athen's has Uber. But be weary of using a Taxi. They'll take advantage of you. We actually saw a fight break out with a Taxi driver! Be careful in that that each area in Athens is different and can go from safe to unsafe within a block. In general, the closer to The Acropolis, the safer it is. We loved Athens - even though our luggage hadn't arrived (and wouldn't for five days). It's the locals there that make it so wonderful! Read Less

There are no sites near the dock. We made private arrangements for a tour of Athens. It worked out great.
