Port of Piraeus has been the harbour of Athens since the Ancient times. It is located by the Phaleron Bay on the Aegan Sea. Piraeus is the main Greek port and a centre of communication for the Greek Islands.

Apart from handling containers and cars, the Port of Piraeus puts much focus on passenger traffic. The numbers of passengers visiting the harbour each year (around 20 mln) is one of the highest in Europe. The container terminal began its operations in 2010.
