– DISCOVER THE HEART OF PIRAEUS –
A port-city with a fascinating history, vibrant, with sights worth seeing.
The neighborhood Achillion is located is called “Trouba”. In the mid 20th century it was the most infamous place in Athens-Piraeus. It was no more than a typical harbor bad-neighbor.
Drugs, prostitution, drunken sailors, street musicians, night clubs, corrupted police, murders and street fights was the “daily menu” in the area. Novels written, songs made even movies filmed to keep the history up today. Trouba eventually lost identity after 1970 and became civilized. Rich naval companies, new hotels, commercial stores established and the “bad” neighbor became a busy city with luxurious shops and coffee shops for the “good ladies and business men”.
So today the surrounding area is full of shops, cafés, bars, restaurants full of life and safe for walking 24 hours a day. Ask for more information at the reception desk and we will gladly give you any information possible for your tour in our city. Enjoy
