Piraeus (Athens)

Piraeus is your gateway port for the magnificent city of Athens. This incredible destination is steeped in history, and home to some of the most famous landmarks in the entire world. Within the city itself, you’ll want to visit Constitution Square and the Houses of Parliament, each offering an impressive example of some of the slightly more recent architecture that the city has to offer, while the changing of the guard in the square is a fascinating sight if you time your visit right. Athens is also home to a wealth of exciting boutiques and upmarket restaurants, should you wish to sample more of the contemporary culture of the city.

Yet it’s a visit to the Acropolis that always stands out on a cruise to Athens. This amazing location is home to ancient temples and of course the towering Parthenon, which you’ll be shown by your expert guide as you learn more about the history of Ancient Greece. The Acropolis sits high above the city, so make sure you pack your camera to capture the awe-inspiring views over the Greek capital.

The currency in Athens is the Euro. Athens is 3 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT +3).
