Piraeus, Greece

Don't dismiss scenes like this as ordinary. Repairing the nets on fishing boats has been going on in Piraeus's harbor for at least 2,500 years. How many cities have industries that have lasted that long?  Every morning, the Saronic Gulf beckons; every evening the catch is served in harborside tavernas. [2006]
