While the port has experienced several ups and downs over the centuries, it is now a popular destination for people who have set Athens as the destination of their trip. The beautiful natural harbour not only offers a great view of the coasts of Athens and Greece – it’s worth taking a moment to immerse yourself in the district.

In between, the tram chugs and the ferries and excursion boats meander through the harbor. Istanbul in Turkey is the only city in the world that spans two continents. Once you have taken the Turkish city to your heart, you will travel back again and again.
