About Piraeus City & Port History
Piraeus is Greece's third largest city in terms of population and
its biggest port. It was firstly settled in the ages of Themistocles,
when the Long Walls were built (478 BC), and the town was laid out
to the plans of the architect Hippodamus.
It gained considerably in importance when Athens became a naval
power. The ancient harbors of Piraeus were Zea and Munichia. Zea,
now called Passalimani, is one of the largest marinas in the Mediterranean.
Munichia, also known as Mikrolimano or Tourkolimano, is a pretty
little port with yachts and fishing-boats and ringed with fish taverns.

songs, with its traditional houses, which offers a panoramic view.
