Skip the high priced excursion package. Catch the X-80 bus outside the cruise terminal--4 euros for a 24 hour ticket--for an express ride to the Acropolis. The same ticket takes you back to the cruise terminal; buses run every 30 minutes.

In Piraeus, we skipping our usual train trip into Athens and opted for the “PR01 Corinth Canal”. After a couple of hours on the bus, we arrived in Corinth and went out on a bridge to see the canal from above. The bus went down to water level where our group hopped on a private boat to traverse the canal. They provided a surprising nice selection of local Greek food including spanakopita, shrimp, octopus and other snacks, washed down with a small glass of Ouzo.

We just did the hop-on-hop-off bus to get from port to the area where most of the attractions are (near the Acropolis). The new Acropolis Museum was interesting as well.

Take the hop on hop off bus, it is the way to go. There is a face care product called APIVITA. Only if I knew it was that good, I would get more. You can get it in pharmacy.

We found a tour at the dock. It was fantastic and half the price than those available through the cruise line.

After 2 days at sea, well rested. Took easy Metro from Piraeus. Went to Acropolis, Changing of the Guard, and the Plaka district. Great day.
