About Port of Piraeus

Piraeus port is the biggest in Greece. It's the largest passenger port in Europe and the second biggest in the world. It's also an important European port for cargo shipping and is one of the economic drivers of Athens. While the city of Piraeus is separate from Athens proper, it has been absorbed by the capital's metropolitan area and is usually considered a part of Athens.

The city of Piraeus was formed way back in the early 5th century BC and was intended from the beginning to serve as a port for Athens. The Golden Age of Athens in the 4th century BC saw the construction of the famous Long Walls which protected the city and the port from attack by other Mediterranean powers. But as the chief port of ancient Greece, the fortunes of Piraeus were tied to those of the country as a whole. As ancient Greece began to be eclipsed and eventually annexed by the Roman Empire, Piraeus declined in importance as a center shipping.

Things changed in the 19th century. Once Athens was declared the capital of the newly independent Greece, Piraeus once again became a vital port. The city of Piraeus grew along with the port, and this growth was bolstered by the steady increase in tourism throughout the latter half of the 20th century. Now, 20 million passengers pass through the port of Piraeus every year, heading to or from Athens, other Greek islands, and international destinations across the Mediterranean.

Things to do in Port of Piraeus

For many people, Piraeus is a means to an end. A large portion of Athens' millions of annual tourists arrive by boat and pass through Piraeus on their way to the capital. Additionally, Piraeus is popular as an embarkation point for tours to other Greek islands. But in the harbor city itself, there's more to do than a casual glance might suggest.

  • Explore the history of the port at the archaeological museum. This institution houses relics from the remotest chapter of ancient Greece right through to the Roman period. Next to the museum itself, you'll find the ruins of the theater of Zea, built in the 2nd century BC. It’s a great place to get a handle on the way this port grew and developed in ancient times.
  • See a glamorous side of Greek life at Mikrolimano. This gorgeous natural harbor was Athens' naval port in ancient times. Now, the houses that climb the hill above the port are holiday homes for the wealthy, and fantastic seafood restaurants line the promenade along the water's edge.
  • See the legacy of the regeneration of Piraeus in the Kastella neighborhood. As Piraeus started to find its feet again in the 19th century, this neighborhood became popular, and now the historic buildings give it a unique charm. Of course, the ocean views from this hilltop neighborhood don’t exactly hurt.
  • Experience the more recent history of Greece on the battleship Averof. This armored cruiser was launched in 1910 and was the flagship of the Greek Navy at the start of the 20th century. It was involved in the naval battles that help to liberate Greece from the control of the Ottoman Empire and also served in the Second World War. Now, the ship serves as a floating museum and a tribute to the men who served Greece on this vessel.
  • Get a toe in the water at Votsalakia. The largest beach in Piraeus, this rocky cove has surprisingly clean water given the presence of the port. There’s even a small island you can swim out to and enjoy views back toward Athens in the distance.
