My wife and I had never been to Athens, so we opted for the 48 hour pass (which only cost a few more Euros than the 24 hour pass). We initially took the 80 minute Athens trip, in order to get an idea of where...More

We bought the 24 hour hop on and off tour plus the entrance fees to many attractions including the Acropolis, several museums, the temple of Zeus and many other attractions. It was definitely worth paying to skip the line to the Acropolis alone. The bus...More
