It is very important that they announce the pick-up times at the port since on the web it indicates 12:30 pm but in reality they pick up passengers from 8:30 am. There are 3 routes to take for the same price and there is always a place and they are on time. Highly recommended if you arrive by cruise

we booked green and red lines hoping to change lines at the Acropolis, the trip on green line took much longer than epected and we had to miss the red line to meet with our schedule. The buses were very hot considering summer and they did not had sufficent air conditioning.

Myself and my boyfriend came to Athens on a cruise just for the day so we booked with CSS and we enjoyed it soooo much. The bus was waiting for us right outside our port terminal and the guide (big shoutout to Terry) explained everything to us that we needed to know to have the best day. We have used CSS in Monaco, Rome and Athens and we can only say good things!!
