Piraeus » City Info » Economy

Being Greek’s one of the leading commercial ports, Piraeus has led to the region’s economic development. Most of Greece’s shipowners have offices centred around the street Akti Miaouli where large scale shipping activities take place on a day-to-day basis.

With its geographical location and beautiful neoclassical architecture, Piraeus has also become a frequently visiting tourist destination.

Nevertheless, Piraeus is still a significant centre for Greek and international shipping where bi-annually there occurs a shipping convention in the city, called ‘Posidonia’ that attracts maritime industry professionals from all over the world.
