Dining by the sea


A family having an early dinner (or late lunch) by the sea in Mikrolimano, Piraeus. Mikrolimano is a small bay below the hill of Kastella in Piraeus, Greece. Piraeus is the port of Athens.

A number of restaurants, cafes and tavernas line the bay, offering diners the opportunity to enjoy their meal right next to the water. The only way to get closer to the sea is to dive in!

Another familiar scene, this could be here... We spent a nice afternoon wandering around Piraeus, long time ago, but I still remember the place quite well. I hope it didn't change too much...

I thought you'd appreciate it :-) I have to say, Mikrolimano reminded me very much of your own photos of Livorno!

Couldn't tell you how much Piraeus may have changed over the years, as I don't go that often - usually just to the main port and straight out. This was my first visit to Mikrolimano!

It was fab! I took so many photos there, I hope to show you some more over the next few days.
