As Mr. Anomeritis stated: “Piraeus is not only a big cruise port, it is also a port which presents its 2,500-year-old history and its contribution to the development of Athens, Greece and Europe”. He also added that the ancient walls will be a very good way of welcoming cruise passengers to our land, by showing them a part of the port’s ancient history. This project along with the masterplan of the “Cultural Coast of Piraeus” will transform the port into a “portal” of tourism and culture, as Mr. Anomeritis said.
