Piraeus Harbor, Marina Zeas, Microlimano Port | Piraeus Sight Seeing & Nightlife

Piraeus, the port of Athens, is occupying a peninsula 10 kilometers southwest of central Athens. On the north side of Piraeus is the main harbor – one of the largest in the Mediterranean – serving cargo and passenger ships from around the world, while the south side with two smaller harbors serves as the entertainment district.
The Zea harbor is occupied by a yacht marina and has many restaurants and cafes as well as two beaches a short walk away. Adjacent to Zea lies the fishing port Mikrolimano, which is the smallest and most picturesque of Piraeus’ three harbors. It is dotted with traditional seafood eateries and stylish restaurants. A number of nightclubs and bars can be found in the streets of the Kastella Hill near the port. A great number of fish taverns can also be found along Akti Themistokleous street on the southwest side of Piraeus Peninsula.
There are two museums in Piraeus. The Nautical Museum at the Zea Harbor and the Archeological Museum. Other points of interest are the Agia Triada Cathedral on Dimokratias Street and the Municipal Theatre on Korai Square built in 1885.
Lambraki and Dimokratias Streets are the main shopping areas of Piraeus. Great bargains can be found in the shops near the harbor and at the flea market, held each Sunday near the Metro Station.
Piraeus, the port of Athens, is the hub of the Greek ferry network. Frequent ship departures take travelers to the Greek islands. All ferries depart from the main harbor. The hydrofoil services to the Attica Islands depart from the Zea Harbor with the exception of the Aegean service, which leaves from the main harbor. You can book tickets at www.greekferries.gr or find more information about ship schedules at www.ferries.gr, www.bluestarferries.com or www.hsw.gr. For additional information contact the Piraeus Port Authority by calling 210-4511311 or 210-4226000/4.
Piraeus can be easily reached from Athens, by Metro Line 1 which connects Omonia Square in central Athens with the passenger ship section of the harbor.
