Silversea Luxury Cruises A ATHENS (Piraeus)

ATHENS (Piraeus)
ATHENS (Piraeus)

It's no wonder that all roads lead to the fascinating and maddening metropolis of Athens. Lift your eyes 200 feet above the city to the Parthenon, its honey-color marble columns rising from a massive limestone base, and you behold architectural perfection that has not been surpassed in 2,500 years. But, today, this shrine of classical form dominates a 21st-century boomtown. To experience Athens—Athína in Greek—fully is to understand the essence of Greece: ancient monuments surviving in a sea of cement, startling beauty amid the squalor, tradition juxtaposed with modernity.

Locals depend on humor and flexibility to deal with the chaos; you should do the same. The rewards are immense. Although Athens covers a huge area, the major landmarks of the ancient Greek, Roman, and Byzantine periods are close to the modern city center. You can easily walk from the Acropolis to many other key sites, taking time to browse in shops and relax in cafés and tavernas along the way. From many quarters of the city you can glimpse "the glory that was Greece" in the form of the Acropolis looming above the horizon, but only by actually climbing that rocky precipice can you feel the impact of the ancient settlement. The Acropolis and Filopappou, two craggy hills sitting side by side; the ancient Agora (marketplace); and Kerameikos, the first cemetery, form the core of ancient and Roman Athens. Along the Unification of Archaeological Sites promenade, you can follow stone-paved, tree-lined walkways from site to site, undisturbed by traffic. Cars have also been banned or reduced in other streets in the historical center. In the National Archaeological Museum, vast numbers of artifacts illustrate the many millennia of Greek civilization; smaller museums such as the Goulandris Museum of Cycladic Art Museum and the Byzantine and Christian Museum illuminate the history of particular regions or periods. Athens may seem like one huge city, but it is really a conglomeration of neighborhoods with distinctive characters. The Eastern influences that prevailed during the 400-year rule of the Ottoman Empire are still evident in Monastiraki, the bazaar area near the foot of the Acropolis. On the northern slope of the Acropolis, stroll through Plaka (if possible by moonlight), an area of tranquil streets lined with renovated mansions, to get the flavor of the 19th-century's gracious lifestyle. The narrow lanes of Anafiotika, a section of Plaka, thread past tiny churches and small, color-washed houses with wooden upper stories, recalling a Cycladic island village. In this maze of winding streets, vestiges of the older city are everywhere: crumbling stairways lined with festive tavernas; dank cellars filled with wine vats; occasionally a court or diminutive garden, enclosed within high walls and filled with magnolia trees and the flaming trumpet-shaped flowers of hibiscus bushes. Formerly run-down old quarters, such as Thission, Gazi and Psirri, popular nightlife areas filled with bars and mezedopoleia (similar to tapas bars), are now in the process of gentrification, although they still retain much of their original charm, as does the colorful produce and meat market on Athinas. The area around Syntagma Square, the tourist hub, and Omonia Square, the commercial heart of the city about 1 km (½ mi) northwest, is distinctly European, having been designed by the court architects of King Otho, a Bavarian, in the 19th century. The chic shops and bistros of ritzy Kolonaki nestle at the foot of Mt. Lycabettus, Athens's highest hill (909 feet). Each of Athens's outlying suburbs has a distinctive character: in the north is wealthy, tree-lined Kifissia, once a summer resort for aristocratic Athenians, and in the south and southeast lie Glyfada, Voula, and Vouliagmeni, with their sandy beaches, seaside bars, and lively summer nightlife. Just beyond the city's southern fringes is Piraeus, a bustling port city of waterside fish tavernas and Saronic Gulf views.

Acropolis & Its Museum (For In-Transit Guests)

Journey back in time to Ancient Greece during this scenic, half-day excursion to the Acropolis, and a sightseeing drive through historic Athens.


Scenic Drive through Athens

Depart the pier for the approximate 30-minute drive to Athens. Upon arrival, begin your sightseeing tour of the city. Pass by the Olympic Stadium, home of the first modern-day Olympic Games in 1896, the former Royal Palace at Constitution Square and Syntagma Square, home of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. After seeing these and other ancient and contemporary sites, proceed to the Acropolis.

Upon arrival, climb the smooth marble steps of the Acropolis. After passing through the Propylaea, the entrance to the complex of buildings, view the Temple of Athena Nike, the Erectheum and its classical Porch of Maidens, the Caryatids. From here, visit the Parthenon, considered the world's most perfect example of classical architecture. Looking down from the Acropolis, see the ancient Greek theatre of Dionyssos and the ancient Roman theatre of Herod Atticus.


Acropolis Museum

After visiting the Acropolis, take a stroll to the nearby Acropolis Museum, which features approximately 150,696 square feet (about 14,000 square metres) of exhibition space. Here, the treasures from the previous museum area are displayed alongside other surviving antiquities discovered from the remains of an ancient Athenian city that is visible through the museum's glass floor. Following your guided visit, commence the approximate 30-minute drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves an extensive amount of walking for approximately three hours, at times over uneven and slippery paths, with 80 steps to negotiate at the Acropolis. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair.
