Piraeus is the largest commercial center in Greece, while its port accommodates the largest proportion of traffic across Europe, connecting by sea Athens with the Aegean islands and visited by most cruise ships.

This storied industrial city continues to enchant visitors with its unique location and its history, which is closely tied to the sea and to which it owes its economic and cultural development.

The city of Piraeus or otherwise Porto Leone (in the17th century) or Porto Dragon (during the Catalan occupation) was already inhabited in the Neolithic period and flourished in the classical period when it was for the first time proclaimed a municipality, the seaport of the then ancient Greek state.
Nowadays Piraeus continues to be one of the largest urban parts of Athens and joins the center with numerous means of public transport such as train, tram, bus and proastiakos (commuter train).
Athens, on the other hand, is the "most historical" city in Europe and one of the oldest cities in the world. It is known worldwide for its historical monuments that have survived over the centuries, such as the Acropolis, and museums that preserve this valuable history alive.

However, apart from history, Athens can offer its visitors modern stimuli and proposals. In the center, one can attend cultural events and exhibitions, wander into the streets to taste unique delicacies from around the world and have fun all day long. Do not forget that the Mediterranean climate of Athens makes it the ultimate holiday destination all year round!
