The port of Piraeus, as well as the city, has a long history. The first mentions about the fishermen settlement appeared in the V century BC. It was the time of construction of a huge seaport that might become the best center of the ancient Greek trade and development.
In translation from Greek, the name of the port denotes to “cross” or ”transmit.”. According to the historical sources, Piraeus quite often changed both its owners and the name. However, after the city obtained independence, the port received its name back. The first metro to the seaport was constructed in 1869.
