Athens Cruise Guide

Athens, Greece’s capital, is a bustling city full of stunning hilltop views, beautiful architecture, and a depth of history. Neighboring Piraeus, which is one of the busiest cruise ports in the world, this city is a must-see port for those sailing on Mediterranean cruises.

Step into a world of Greek mythology and explore UNESCO world heritage sites like the Acropolis and the Parthenon. Then relax by the sandy bay, and walk along the cobblestone streets of hillside Plaka, and indulge in authentic Greek dining and shops. If you’re looking for the best views of Athens, climb up to the top of Mount Lycabettus.

The Mediterranean climate in Athens is generally mild throughout the year, with the summer months of May to September being the hottest. Start off your Mediterranean cruise at the birthplace of Western civilization, and leave inspired by some of the most striking architecture in the world!
