Wow! I have enjoyed reading many hours of Athens posts and information and still need help.
I will arrive in Sept. at Piraeus. Will take bus and Metro to start at the Acropolis. We are a group of 8 couples and will dock at 6am and need to be back on the ship at 5pm.
I am planning on being at the Acropolis as early as possible. Would also like to do the Acropolis Museum. I realize that there are great walking maps available, but don't know which of all the sites to see next. I realized my big mistake was to only have 1 day..... but must make the best of it now.
The ancient sites, changing of the guard, look wonderful, but not sure what order, or how much we can do. Should we try to do everything included in the Acropolis ticket? When? where to grab a quick refreshment. I think seeing sites and then wondering around a shopping district? Plaka? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!
