PIRAEUS

PIRAEUS

The first port of Greece … In the period of the Ottoman domination, sailors called him “Porto Leone”. Pasalimani, or Zea, is one of the largest marinas in the Mediterranean. Nearly all visitors to Piraeus end up in Mikrolimano or Turkolimano, ancient Mouniachia, a picturesque harbor with fish taverns located in the shade of the hill of Kastela. Another interesting choice that the area offers us is the Piraeus Ouzeris where we enjoy fishmeal and ouzo refurbishing in the sea that opens in front of us.
