Athens (Piraeus), Greece

Cruises from Athens (Piraeus) depart from spring through fall.

Piraeus serves as Athens’ primary port. Attractions here include archeological and maritime museums, the hilltop quarter of Kastella, Mikrolimano’s seafood restaurants and the remains of the Piraeus Wall. After making the 6-mile journey to Greece’s capital city, head to the Acropolis, the 7-acre rock formation that’s home to the Propylaea, Erechtheum, Parthenon and Temple of Athena Nike. Nearby, the Acropolis Museum features exhibitions dedicated to these monuments and offers views of the city. Guided excursions may visit the Temple of Olympian Zeus; the Theatre of Dionysus, possibly the world’s oldest theater; and the Panathenaic Stadium, site of the first modern Olympics. Occurring every hour on the hour, the changing of the guard ceremony at the Monument of the Unknown Soldier is a spectacle worth seeing.
