Day 1: Athens (Piraeus)/Greece |Embark

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. It began to expand again in the 19th century, once Athens was named the capital of Greece.

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
