The smallest and most photographed port of Athens, Mikrolimano, is a stone’s throw from Faliro. It combines a beautiful view with an array of choices, including entertainment but also food.
The port is often referred to by various names, such as Mikrolimano, Fanari or port Koumoundourou. In ancient times, Mikrolimano was called Limenas Mounichias and today is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Athens.
Its picturesque marina attracts visitors who want to combine a beautiful stroll, fresh fish, coffee and nightlife. Mikrolimano belongs to the wider district of Kastella and neighbours with Marina Zeas, also known as Pasalimani.
Start your walk from the nearby Stadium Irinis & Filias and after crossing the wooden bridge you will see the church of Panagia Myrtidiotissa, signaling the beginning of Mikrolimano.
Here, you will find your usual cafes as well as small taverns with tables spreading out over the pedestrian area. A few steps further takes you within the very heart of Mikrolimano where the view will compensate you for your effort . Tiny, picturesque houses, fishermen and the smell of fresh fish and seafood epitomise summer as well as typical Greek scenery.
