    What to Expect
    Orange Line:
    Visit the Acropolis and Parthenon, the highlights of the city! The orange line roams by the most beautiful attractions further down the city centre. You may see the Plaka District, the most traditional area of Athens, and mingle with the vibes of ancient Greece. At Syntagma square, you can admire the Hellenic Parliament with its impressive guard line. Feel free to explore the Panathenaic stadium, where the first modern Olympic Games were held. Roam around or the Temple of Zeus or the picturesque area of Monastiraki and its Flea Market.
    Blue Line - Piraeus:
    If you are fresh from the cruise, you can start your journey at either of the cruise Terminals in the Port of Piraeus, just a stone's throw away from the cruise ship. You may admire attractions such as Pasalimani, the yachts’ marina, and Mikrolimano, the ancient harbour of Piraeus. Don't miss out on the impressive new Museum of Acropolis, and walk up to the Acropolis hill to admire the Parthenon.
    Yellow Line − Glyfada:
    Start your tour to the Athenian Riviera from the Planetarium stop of the Blue Line. Find out how the bewildering desert of the 1900s has evolved into one of the most cosmopolitan areas of Greece! The Glyfada Line is a blending of history and modernism. Enjoy the sunset from Marina Flisvou, or swim and sunbathe in Agios Kosmas. In the Glyfada Terminal, you may wander around the most cosmopolitan suburbs of the capital, enjoy the luxurious department stores and wind down in the beautiful cafes. Don't miss out on the beach bar and taste a cocktail by the seaside!
    Green Line − Vouliagmeni:
    Vouliagmeni may have been associated with the beaches, but the area is a history lesson on its own. From the Allied Forces Cemetery to the Byzantine Museum, Vouliagmeni Line is certainly worth a visit. Relax at the beautiful beach of Kavouri Oceanis, one of the most popular beaches in Athens. Vouliagmeni Lake, one of the most popular spots in Athens, is a wonder of natural beauty. Don’t miss out on a jump into the thermal baths and admire the breathtaking surroundings.
    Mini Fun Train:
    The Piraeus Fun Train is carefully designed to take you to all the Piraeus famous sights and Piraeus main shopping area. Just 2 minutes from the main Arrival Gates, the Fun Trains are waiting for you to hop on and explore Piraeus.

    There don’t seem to be enough buses. We waited for over an hour for a bus to Pireas while the red and yellow buses came and went, so we weren’t game to get off at Pireas for fear that we would never be picked up! We then had to wait over half an hour for an Athens line bus,

    Dear Heather, thank you for using our services. Firstly we would like to inform you that the frequency during winter time for all hop on hop off companies is the same: Every 20 min for the center line, every 90 min for the Piraeus line and 2 departures for the beach. Moreover our time schedule is on our maps, signs and online. A map with all the details was given to you and it is also available in our buses the whole time. Additionally our representatives inform all of our clients for the exact schedule and departures. That means you were informed properly for the product you bought. Most of our passengers get on and get off easily in Piraeus following the schedule with the exact departures. In conclusion our representatives did not allow to use your ticket for than 48 hours because your ticket was valid for exact 48 hours. If you needed an extension ticket you could ask them. Best regards,
