Piraeus is only 12km away from the center of Athens and is the main port of the city from the historical years. The port of Piraeus is the largest in Europe in terms of commercial traffic. It serves more than 20 million visitors a year. Ferries depart for most of the country's islands from here.
Piraeus has the history of Greece in it. In antiquity Piraeus hosted the fleet of Athens and all the war campaigns started there. During the centuries that followed, the port was neglected but began to evolve again in the 19th century.
Piraeus is a bustling port that invites you to discover: markets, taverns and bars, squares, shopping centers, bazaars with spices, restaurants of all tastes, as well as local hangouts, where improvised musical evenings with bouzouki will take you to 50’s and 60’s.
Vinyl records, coins and old books await you at the bazaar set up every Sunday at the trolley depot area. Loud voices, bazaars and the nostalgia of an earlier era. Nothing better for collectors of old items and experiences. Learn the long history of the port city, by visiting the Archaeological Museum, the Maritime Museum and the Municipal Art Gallery.
