The Italian city of Brindisi is located on the Adriatic Sea coast in the Apulia region of Italy. The city's port is a natural harbour and has played an important role in the city's, and wider region's, trade with Greece and the Middle East. On the north coast of the city particularly, there have been many important archaeological finds in the many sand dunes and on the beaches. Despite the port's economic benefit to the city, tourism still plays a major role in the city's fortunes. For visitors interested in agritourism, head inland from the city where wine (Wine Appia) and olive oil (Collina di Brindisi oil) is produced.
From the city's port ferries operate to a number of destinations. Ferries to the Greek island of Cephalonia are operated by Maritime My Way Ferries. There are also ferries departing to Paxi , Corfu, Igoumenitsa, Zakynthos and Patras in Greece.
The Greek city of Patras is located around 215 km to the west of the Greek capital, Athens, and is the regional capital of Western Greece in the northern Peloponnese. Visitors to the city should head to Aghiou Nikolaou which is the city's most famous street and is only a short distance to the Old City. This is characterised by cobbled streets lined with lovely neoclassical mansions which act as a reminder of the city's illustrious past. A popular site in the city is its medieval castle that was constructed in the latter part of the 6th century AD on the site of the ancient Acropolis. The castle's walls enclose an area of around 22 sq. m and the castle consists of a triangular external compound that was reinforced with towers and ramparts.
There are several spots around Patras that honours the famous Greek poet Kostis Palamas. His house is the most interesting one as is the house where he was born. When he moved to Athens it became the place where the Serao family (from Italy) lived and where the Italian writer Matilde Serao was born. Today it houses the Kostis Palamas Institution. The most famous statue of him stands at Ypsilá Alónia Square.
