When Chris and I returned to the boat from our day in Athens, we still had several hours in port so we grabbed the kids and went out to see the port town of Piraeus.
The city is six miles southwest of central Athens and has been Athens' port since ancient times. Today it's also a major hub for transportation to the Greek islands. So much so, in fact, that it is the busiest passenger port in the Mediterranean. It also has a few charming sights tucked away.
From the cruise boat terminal there is a handy tourist walk around the city. All you have to do is follow the little yellow men along a path through town.
We followed the path and passed by the Archeological Museum. Just outside the museum they have an active dig site as well as odds and ends of ancient structures. All this neat stuff literally in peoples' backyards!
There was cute little harbor area down a block or two from the museum with a nice promenade to enjoy the views and the sun.
And there was a cute little girl.
