If you are traveling to a new city and you want to visit the top sightseeing attractions, then it makes a lot of financial sense to buy a pass or card that gets you into multiple attractions.  This way, you can save money because these cards bundle all the attractions together.  By paying one price, you would spend a lot less money than if you bought admission to each attraction individually.  In addition to giving you admission into top sightseeing attractions, these cards also can get you discounts for Athens attractions, too.  So it makes a lot of sense when you are budgeting your upcoming trip.

So if you are planning a trip to Athens, Greece, you should consider buying an iVenture Card or an Athens City Pass.

Today, we are going to compare the two passes to show you which one would be better for you

As you can see, the iVenture Card is obviously a lot more expensive than the City Pass; however, with the iVenture Card you get full admission into a lot of attraction whereas with the City Pass you just get discounted prices. So if you are visiting a lot of attractions, then the iVenture Card would a better financial option. However, if you are visiting Acropolis but not much more, then the City Pass would be a better financial option.
