Empires of the Med - Athens question

Recommended Posts

This will be our second visit to Athens.  Could someone from an earlier tour tell me what time the shuttle into the city arrives at the earliest?  Where does the shuttle drop you off.  My husband would like to revisit the Acropolis Museum and I'd like to have the tickets reserved ahead of time.  We need to select a time for booking. 


Also, does the included tour stop anywhere along the way or is it strictly a bus tour until you get to the Archeological Museum?

Thank you.

The shuttle will drop you at Hadrian's Arch  (Dionisiou Areopagitou Street and Vasilisis Amalias Street) and it is about a five minute walk to the museum from the shuttle stop. The ride from the port to the Arch will be between 30 - 45 minutes (or more) depending on traffic. Shuttle service started at 9 AM on our cruise.


For the included tour, where you go and where you stop seems to depend on traffic and the whim of your tour guide.


My daughter and son-in-law had completely different stops than what my husband and I had.

Thank you.  I think we'll be safe with 10AM tickets.
