Port life today
The port is a hectic world of activity, with ships of great size coming and going, and large-capacity cranes looming on the horizon.
The port today is at the heart of the city and at the centre of the Mediterranean, as it was along the routes of the more important economic and cultural exchanges of the ancient world.
