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.

Highly recommend you book a tour in Athens as it is not walkable from the ship. We used Private Greece Tours and Aki was our driver/tour guide. Five stars for the private tour for our group of 6. Aki was at the port before we got off the ship waiting with a sign with our name. He had a van that could seat 8 passengers that was very clean, comfortable and he had ice cold water for us. Aki spoke English and Greek and was extremely knowledgable with Greece and Greek History. He was very friendly, personable and adjusted our tour to meet our needs. We went to several outdoor historical sites in the morning, a fantastic Greek lunch was arranged for us and finished the day with an indoor museum. P.G.T. TOUR GROUP www.privategreecetours.com

Full of graffiti, however go have got to see the main sites I suppose, We got hop on hop off for around 18 euros which was good value. If I went again would opt to go to Corrinth Canal.

Athens- there are lots of hop-on hop-off buses waiting by port parking to take you to town. I did a tour with Piraeus Express Bus. The guide was great. View from the Acropolis is amazing. The walk up and down is very slippery because it's all marble. Best to get your Greece souvenirs in Athens because the prices are much higher in the islands.

The view from the cruise ship is something else - all those white shimmering buildings baking in the sun....We were there in September and it was still incredibly hot! 38 degrees Celsius. We opted for a walking tour in Athens and I'm so glad we did. Our guide was an archeology student and we saw some great places, too many to mention - we also had free time to walk around the Plaka and do some shopping. A very enjoyable day all round!
