History of Athens Marina

The Paleo Faliro area is one of the southern suburbs of Athens. In ancient times it was called Phaleron. Until the expansion of Piraeus by Themistokeles in the 5th century BC. BC Phaleron was the only port of Athens and therefore of great importance. To protect the port, it was connected by a wall to Athens, further inland.

However, after the construction of Piraeus, the port quickly lost its importance.

Athens Marina, formerly known as Faliro Mairna, was established to accommodate visitors' yachts during the Athens 2004 Olympic Games.

The substructure of the port has great depths near the piers, varying between five and six meters. This means that yachts with specific needs can also dock here.

The modern and well-kept Athens Marina complex also enjoys a very good international reputation, especially among owners of mega yachts.
