The port of Athens.
Piraeus, the principal port of Athens, is the biggest in Greece and the third biggest port in the world.
Athenians built fortifications and a shipyard in 493 BC at the urging of the influential politician Themistocles. A marble statue at the entrance to the port was stolen in 1688, but was eventually recovered and is now on display in Venice.
The impressive walls of Themistocles, which surround Piraeus have stood the test of time and are much admired by visitors to the port.
