The shore excursion to Corinth, which includes a cruise on the Corinth Canal, would be an excellent choice from Pireaus. There's some walking through the ruins, but the walkways are pretty level so it's nothing like climbing the Acropolis.

Also, if you have time, you can go to La Platka (the historic market, which is now a pedestrian zone) in the heart of Athens for some shopping.
