It stopped at all the major attractions in Athens.Very timely busses. It was just awfully hot on the bus. The bus driver made us get off before the Acropolis at the end of the night.He said the Hop On Hop Off bus was finished. We had to walk a few miles back to the Acropolis (out 1st stop) closest to our apartment . Way too hot !

I must tell that it was the best thing I did in Athens, I sat in the bus and saw around when I was tired of walking, the rest of the time hopped out at interesting points, wandered around and hopped back on the next one to the next spot. The guides at each points were marvellous, especially the one who guided us at Acropolis. Great Time in Athens
