In a distance less than six kilometers from the city centre, we can find Flisvos Marina. The marina has full access to all the main avenues which are leading either to Athens or to Piraeus. Flisvos Marina is the closest to Athens and the most modern yacht-marina we can find in the whole city of Athens. It is fully equipped for harboring 303 anchoring ships.
Within the broader area we can find a great variety of café, restaurants and bars, which make the Flisvos Marina a 24-hour destination, full of fun and excitement! Just imagine to drink our cocktails, and seeing, in a distance less than twenty meters, beautiful yachts and the bluest sea in Athens! Inside the marina's area are taking place many different cultural events, from concerts to public seminars in a variety of themes.
Flisvos Marina is one of the most beautiful and relaxing spots of Athens, in which we can combine pleasure, relaxation and practical arrangements regarding our sea-escapes!
The Flisvos marina is in Phaleron Bay, which was the port of ancient Athens, located inside the Saronic Gulf. It was the major port of Athens before the establishment of the Piraeus Port by Themistocles during the fifth century B.C. If we are really interested in naval history we can always pay a visit to HS Averof and HS Velos, which currently both of them are used as floating museums. We can also, and we should, visit Olympias, an accurate and eloquent modern reconstruction of an ancient Greek trireme naval ship.
Greek culture and civilization after all, are directly connected to the sea and the Greek naval history is one of the most interesting naval histories of the whole human civilization!
