Piraeus has a vast history that dates back to ancient Greece. The city was founded in the early 5th century BC, when plans were put in place to make it the new port of Athens: A prototype harbor was built, concentrating all of Athens' import and transit trade, as well as the navy's base, in one location (Piraeus). The naval station in Piraeus had 372 trireme ship sheds during Athens' Classical period.[5] Beginning in the 3rd century B.C., Piraeus began to collapse.

The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
