An ancient emporium-port
A small traditional fishing port that has become an institutional marina of the Mediterranean Riviera frequented by the most luxurious yachts, the port of Saint-Tropez is one of the city's tourist emblems. This ancient emporium-port, then called Athénopolis Massiliensium, would have been installed by the Phocaeans at the time of the founding of Marseille around 600 BC. Located at the gates of the historic city center, the port extends today on two basins of 22 acres (9 ha) and offers a mooring capacity of nearly 800 rings. Its Estienne-d'Orves breakwater can accommodate yachts over 164 ft long (50 m).
