5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

Fabulous day! Lots of walking, the idea of which made me groan when I saw the acropolis from a distance..but it was surprisingly easy. You begin by going thru a lovely, very peaceful park, and get up there slowly, gently to a point of ....Awe. The bus is terrific because there's no way to know how much time to plan, and you can do this at your own pace. Highly recommend PS..I am 73 and my Uncle is 92 and we loved every minute and we're not fatigued. Got lost heading back, which gave us some back street views..terrific.
