Location: Piraeus

Piraiki Piraiki is an area in Piraeus, located southeast of the ferry port, 13 km away from the city center of Athens.
It features three coves, namely the Skafaki Cove, the Baikoutsis Cove, and the Aphrodite Cove, with the latter having a beautiful chapel built on it.

It is one of the oldest areas of the region and it used to be a densely populated place during the period of Classical Greece. The remnants of ancient walls that were built for defensive purposes can still be found there.
Gradually, the area started to decline and it remained abandoned for many centuries.
However, restoration and cosmetic projects took place in the 1980s, adding sidewalks, green spots, benches, and railings in the area, making it ideal for strolling.

Today, Piraiki is one of the favorite areas of the capital's residents, thanks to the beautiful pedestrian street that allows for walks next to the blue sea. Apart from that, it is famous for its many fish taverns, which serve tasty fish and seafood dishes and are full of people on weekends, national holidays, and sunny days!
