About Piraeus

Piraeus was known in medieval times as Porto Leone, a name due to the enormous stone lion, which guarded the port's entrance. So, its life had been joined to the sea since its creation.

Today, the life of Piraeus is centered on its three ports. You can walk around the central harbour, shared by cargo and passenger ships alike, and watch the constant comings and goings of goods and people from around the world.

Then, continue your walk to the other two harbors, Zea and Mikrolimano, maybe more touristy and more pleasant for the visitors.

As we are going to show you Piraeus is not only a harbor. This city is full of surprises and unexpected sights  worth to explore.
