The Battle of Salamis was one of the most important battles in history (480 BC). This naval battle between the Greek city-states and Persia was fought in the strait between Piraeus and Salamis Island, an island in the Saronic Gulf near Athens. The Greek victory marked the turning point of the campaign, leading to the eventual Persian defeat.
