Ancient Athens seen from the the Port of Piraeus, a port city in the region of Attica, Greece. Founded in the early 5th century BC, when this area was selected to become the new port of classical Athens and was built as a prototype harbour, concentrating all the import and transit trade of Athens as well as the navy's base. During the Golden Age of Athens the Long Walls were constructed to fortify the route from the main settlement to the port (Piraeus). At classical times the naval base in Piraeus had 372 trireme ship sheds.
