Piraeus is a port-city with a fascinating and ancient history, vibrant, with sights worth seeing. A city that grew and gained power, becoming an important commercial, cultural and industrial center throughout the centuries. In its welcoming embrace you will find on a daily basis thousands of people travelling to the Aegean Sea and Crete, and others visiting Piraeus for food, coffee, entertainment, shopping, walks with a sea view, visits to the museums or around the neoclassical buildings that stand as irrefutable evidence of its glamorous past.
Piraeus extends from the Gulf of Eleusis up to Faliro bay, opposite Salamis. Its main geographical feature is the Piraeus peninsula, on which stands Pasalimani or port of Zea, Mikrolimano (or Tourkolimano) and the hill of Castella (or hill Prophet Elias). It is located 12km southwest of the centre of Athens. Piraeus has become a major international maritime and shipping industry centre thanks to its size, location and the very ancient relationship of Greeks with the sea. In Piraeus there are important monuments, such as a part of the Long Walls of the 5th century BC, remains of ancient temples and buildings. There are also the neoclassical Municipal Theatre, industrial buildings of the early 20th century and impressive modern buildings. Moreover, there are several museums with the most important the Archaeological and the Hellenic Maritime Museum.
