Exploring Athens can mean lots of walking and climbing, a stressful endeavor in the Greek sun or 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 Piraeus or Riviera routes.
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 see the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and stroll through the National Gardens, or widen your sightseeing to the Athens Riviera (depending on 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. Buses run every 15 or 30 minutes depending on the season. See the Itinerary for stops.

This was a great way to get our bearings in Athens. We did a full circuit so on the second circuit we knew where we wanted to get off and explore. Lots of information and very easy to access with several stops

Great sightseeing tour

Was a great tour around Athens. Combine it with the Pireus tour, 22Euros. Very nice bus drivers. They offer you a free Dakos at the Public Cafe, don’t use the coupons, terrible taste and unfriendly staff
