    City Sightseeing Hop on/off bus was great for us getting around the main city sites and well worth the money and although we only did the red route we found it easy to get on and off at the stops we wanted to explore. The timing late afternoon is at least 30-45 minutes between buses presumably due to traffic congestion or that was our experience at the Acropolis Museum.

  • Maeve McGannon

    A great way to get around Athens! Plenty of stops and frequent pick ups.
