Athens and Attica system buses (and trams) run from Athens's center to the southern and northeastern coast, and points from Marathon to Eleusis.
Taking a bus to Arachova, Delphi, and Galaxidi may help you avoid road fatigue.
Seacraft travel from Piraeus's port to the isles near Athens.
Attica's public bus service is extensive, though buses can be infrequent so, for ambitious exploring in the area, a car is invaluable.
The roads to Arachova, Mt. Parnassus, and Galaxidi are decent, but include hairpin turns and can get icy in winter.
The islands are a different story: Cars are prohibited on Hydra and Spetses. On Hydra you can travel by mule and on Spetses by buggy and boat—but it's best to confirm prices first, so you don't get taken for a different kind of ride. Cars and buses zip through Aegina, and scooters are also an option.
