Devote Some Time To A Great Museum in Piraeus, Greece
Many Eastern Mediterranean cruises depart from Piraeus, the port of Athens. If you are going to pass through this city, it’s well worth a day or two visit with its beautiful yacht harbor ringed with a walking promenade featuring outdoor cafes and restaurants.
If you are going to spend some time in Piraeus, spend an hour or two at the Archaeological Museum of Piraeus. If you happen to be there on a Saturday, even better, as admission is free on Saturdays.
Occupying the western side of an Archaeological site in central Piraeus the three floor museum houses a remarkable collection of Greek artifacts from around the area. The city has been an active port dating back 2,500 years so there is much to see.
