Tourist Cards in Athens

Athens has only two tourist passes to choose from, namely the popular Athens Pass and the combo ticket of the Acropolis with 6 archaeological sites. The advantage of both cards is that they are really worth it and you have to decide whether or not you want to visit the Acropolis Museum. Your two options:

1) Highly recommended: Athens Pass

In my opinion, this is the most complete and best discount card for a city trip to Athens. With one purchase you have the most important skip the line tickets. And even better; you get all tickets online. When you visit a number of archaeological areas, you will soon have earned this ticket back, because buying individual tickets is quite expensive (e.g. Acropolis € 20, Ancient Agora € 10, Temple of Zeus € 8 and Kerameikos € 8), making this city pass is absolutely recommended if you are going to do even a little bit of culture. ook your Athens Pass easily via this link.

2) Combo ticket: Acropolis + 6 archaeological sites

This combo-ticket is the smaller version of the Athens Pass above. This combo-ticket does give you access to the 7 archaeological areas including the Acropolis, but this ticket does not include both the Acropolis Museum and the audio guide app. The ticket is very affordable, because you have probably already earned it back after 3 sights (if you would buy individual tickets you would have already paid 64 euros).
