Hop on hop off tour and proximity to hotel

Hi all,

We are thinking of doing the hop on hop off tour since we have very little time in Athens. We have split our travel.

11th Oct arriving in Athens. We have half day here.

18th coming in from Mykonos to Athens at the Rafina port. From here we will need to check into our hotel ( Arethusa hotel) and then start the tour at the Syntagama station.

Flying back on the 19th.

Kindly suggest:

1. What can we do on the 11th for half a day? Staying nearing the Pireaus port. Nighclub/bar/good restuarant recommendations around that area please?

2. For the 18th how do we commute from the Rafina port to the hotel and then from the hotel to start the hop on tour? We are a big group so buses might not be the best way. How aout the metro/ taxis? And do you think we can cover the main sites if we start the hop on hop off at around 2pm and it goes on until 8pm. We definitely want to spend more time at the Acropolis.

Looking forward to your response.

Thank you. Since we have little time i guess taxi makes most sense.

Also we will finish the hop on hop off by around 8pm on the 18th. Any good bars/nighclubs that we can visit close to our hotel(Arethusa)? or in genral any recommendations for restuarants in that area or close by that we shouldnt miss?
