In the morning you will be picked up at the cruise terminal of Piraeus and brought to Athens.
Then, on foot and under supervision of a local tourleader who knows Athens well, you will start exploring the city. You make a walk through the city, experience the hectic pace of a Mediterranean market and visit a beautiful tiny Byzantine church.

You will enjoy a typical Greek  pita-with-souvlaki lunch. After this tasty and fast lunch you have some time on your own. You can go to visit the Acropolis, go shopping in the cozy Plaka area or relax with a glass of wine or ouzo at one of the many inviting terraces.

The time you have to spend on your own depends on the departuretime of your ship.
