Piraeus is the port of Athens. Piraeus has a long recorded history, dating to ancient Greece. Now it is the chief port in Greece and the largest passenger port in Europe.
Piraeus is far from Mouseion Hill more than 8 Km.


Amazing with a fulminant flood light from above the mount. KR Arno

The Sea and the sea of houses, both presented in a very nice transition. Appears to be one of the few days with clear visibility. But it is early enough in the season. VG. HJ.

Was für ein Licht und Häuser wie Sand...

Molto suggestivo 
e per me la tua stupenda veduta. Ma questa cittá purtroppo non mi piace. Ho soltanto l´impressione di un deserto di pietra.
Saluti Wolfgang

@Wolfgang: grazie per il commento e complimenti per l' ottimo italiano. Io penso che tu hai ragione, ma solo in parte. Atene è una città che ha 4 milioni di abitanti, è troppo grande per una nazione come la Grecia, è cresciuta molto disordinatamente ed è molto caotica.
Però il centro storico è molto piacevole e la zona intorno all' Acropoli è straordinaria. Chi conosce la storia antica non può non subire il fascino di Atene.
@Wolfgang: Thanks for the comment and compliments for the very good Italian. I think you're right, but only partly. Athens is a city that has 4 million inhabitants, it is too large for a country like Greece, has grown wildly and is very chaotic.
However, the old town is very nice and the area around the Acropolis is extraordinary. Those who know the ancient history is always fascinated by Athens.

When flying over Athens a couple of weeks ago I did not know where to point my camera to - such astonishing is the size of this agglomeration. Very well put into scene, you are a master of such views.
