Highlights of Athens Accessible Cruise Excursion

Best option if you only have 1 day in Athens

This full-day driving tour works well as either an accessible Athens cruise excursion from Piraeus or as a tour starting at your accessible Athens hotel. An air-conditioned, wheelchair accessible van will transport you quickly and comfortably between the tourist sights. You’ll visit all the world-class highlights of Athens in a single day: the Acropolis, the Temple of Zeus, the National Archaeological Museum, Syntagma Square, the Acropolis museum, the Plaka neighborhood, and more!

On this 8 hour Athens accessible cruise excursion, you can set your own itinerary or follow our recommended itinerary that visits all the most popular sights in Athens. The sights that we recommend visiting are located on top of the Acropolis, just to the south (the Acropolis Museum), to the east (near the Temple of Zeus), and to the north (in the Plaka neighborhood).

Many visitors to Athens make a stop at the Acropolis Museum but completely miss the world-class National Archaeological Museum located north of the other tourist sights. Not so if you take this tour!Other excellent sites that shouldn’t be missed such as the Panathenaic Stadium, the Greek Parliament on Syntagma Square, etc…) are located a little further away from the Acropolis and easy to reach with the wheelchair accessible van.

If you would like a shorter tour, you could choose the Half Day Athens Accessible Driving Tour. If you don’t need any transportation, the most similar tour to this one is the Accessible Athens Acropolis Private Guided Tour.
