Established during the reign of Themistocles on 478 BC, Piraeus is the third biggest populated city of Greece. It is also the biggest port and became an important landmark ever since Athens turned out to be a naval superpower. Piraeus boasts of a historic past. The town was built according to the plans of the eponymous architect Hippodamus. It’s close to urban Athens and can be easily reached if you hire a car and drive down.
This city offers a pristine view of the Mediterranean Sea. Munichia and Zea are famous ports and Zea is currently known as Pasalimani. This large marina attracts history buffs as well as nature enthusiasts. Rent a car and explore Piraeus highlights like the Piraeus Archaeological Museum or the picturesque Munichia, a lovely small harbor that has fishing boats and yachts and is ringed with cozy little fish taverns. The rich and long Piraeus history made it an important hub for classical Athens. And not surprisingly, quite important for modern day Athens too, by being its commercial hub with the large bustling port, with huge commercial complexes, industrial plants and the marine center.
