About the Tour

Piraeus is more than just the gateway to Athens. On this walking tour, I’ll show you all that this port city has to offer, from its hidden treasures to its iconic landmarks.

As you make your way from the port to the Electrical Railway Museum, the story of the city will unfold. Take in significant sites like the Archaeological Museum of Piraeus, Hellenic Maritime Museum, and the Marina Zeas. On this walk, you’ll discover how locals like to spend their time, and the traditions that are still entwined in their everyday life.

Highlights on this tour include:

• Exploring Byzantine era churches
• Hearing about Greek traditions, mythology and legends
• Learning about ancient local history
• Getting tips on where to find the best Greek food and which museums to visit

I look forward to helping you discover this city’s charms, beyond being the gateway to Athens!
