Drapetsona is a suburb and a former municipality in the western part of Piraeus, Greece. Since the 2011 local government reform it is part of the municipality Keratsini-Drapetsona, of which it is a municipal unit.
The area was made up of farmlands. Mixed farming was common. Urban development replaced much of the farmlands in the 1900s and the 1940s. Today, half of the area is urbanized or residential. The Shipping area of Piraeus which is Athens' closest lies to the west and south. It was first opened in the mid-20th century. It took several years to expand the area. The area expanded about 1 km² to make room for freight and shipping areas so shipping from Athens to other parts of the World can begin. The forests are in the southern and the western part along the shoreline.
