Blue Line - Piraeus  Ideal if you have just arrived on a cruise, you can hop on the Blue Line at either of the cruise terminals in the Port of Piraeus, just a stone's throw from your cruise ship. See attractions such as the yacht marina at Pasalimani and the ancient harbor of Mikrolimano. Don't miss out on the impressive new Museum of Acropolis and walk up the hill to admire the Parthenon at the top. The bus takes passengers directly to the most eminent monuments of Athens and Greece. Orange Line - Athens The Orange Line roams by the most beautiful attractions further down the city center from the Acropolis and Parthenon. Explore the historic Plaka district and discover the most traditional area of Athens. Visit the gate of the Roman emperor Hadrian.

Not a lot of places we wanted to hop off, but the ability to see the whole city is good. We did find that the other company with yellow buses (Grayline) had better audio information. Definitely fun to go all the way to Glyfada and eat at Labros restaurant on the deck by the sea.

Nice way to start your holiday and see where you want to go the other days. Advice: listen carefully to the guide who is with the bus, because there are several buses that are similar but go to different destinations. There were quite a few people walking around like headless chicken....

Convenient access to and from the beach. On the way I saw a lot of great and of course new landscapes, which I like a lot! The bus was a two-story bus as shown, and the warm breeze and vegetation different from Finland created the atmosphere for this affordable bus trip.
