Encountered this Lion on a walk through Piraeus. The site overlooks the harbour and the coming and going of innumerable ferries and giant cruise ships. Hardly worth going out of your way for, but if you are passing by anyway, it's a good place to...More

A nice little landmark that anyone coming in and out of the port would see this. The white marble statue is a pleasant site, although not the original (as it was stolen by the Venetians) this is still a great landmark.

The lion itself is nice but not something spending a lot of time for. The history though, with the original being stolen by the Venetians and how a lion has greeted visitors for centuries, is great. Can be read on the site. Spend a short...More

Situated at the entrance of Piraeus harbour, this great landmark has greeted millions and millions of people entering - or leaving - the city. It's a great beauty, made of white marble, faithful to the classical style of the 4th century BCE - it's not...More

Sea food was really bad, squids were raw, we feed them to the cats. The waiter was really tired looking, sad for him. Never again, expensive too. Boats are coming and going, so what!
