    Great experience

    I bought the tickets online before I left for my short trip, and everything was very simple. Print the attachment of the email and deliver it to the attendant at the bus stop. The ticket (I paid € 28 per person) includes the entrance ticket to the Acropolis museum. Everything perfect, only the path that leads to Glyfada a little poor as regards the frequency of the buses. We waited more than an hour.

    Attention when issuing the museum tickets: This is ONLY done by the guide at the Acropolis stop (ask the bus driver), NOT in the museum. Otherwise you stand in line at the museum for free and you will be sent back to the bus stop at the cash desk. Is written very small at the bottom left of the online ticket (PDF). Otherwise everything is great!
