They surrounded the whole city of Piraeus but today only parts of them survive at the area of Marina Zea. The ancient walls of Piraeus were part of the Long Walls, a defensive work for the fortification of ancient Athens constructed between 461 – 455 BC, which united the city to its port. Their construction was completed from 461 BC to 394 BC providing the Athenians with a safe “corridor” between the two cities during the Peloponnesian War.
