PIRAEUS – GREECE

The center of Mediterranean Cruise experience

AT THE HEART OF ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS

Piraeus Port, the largest passenger port in Europe, with more than 20mil. Passengers throughput every year, is sited in a unique geographical position for reaching multiple tourist attractions in east Mediterranean. The Port of Piraeus, at the south east end of continental European Union is located at the same area with the ancient Athenian port which, at its peak in 5th century BC was the most important trade centre of the then known world. In fact, when a cruise passenger disembarks can see the ancient protective walls of that period. The cruise terminals of the port are in a comfortable walking distance from the city of Piraeus and the metro station. The market centre of Athens and the famous Parthenon is easily accessible within 30 minutes by metro.
