Piraeus Guide

The port city of Piraeus in Greece lies on the Saronic Gulf in the Attica region of the country and forms part of the Athens urban area, with the centre of Athens located some 12 km from the port. The centre of Piraeus is generally congested with traffic and tends not to be place where tourists would go. The area has many of the facilities you would expect of a non-tourist town: banks, public buildings, pedestrian areas, shopping streets and the like. The area around Zea Marina and Mikrolimano Harbour are perhaps the most attractive part of Piraeus and have a good selection of restaurants, cafes and bars.

Piraeus is Greece's main port and the largest in Europe and the third largest in the world. Unsurprisingly, it is the hub of Greece's maritime industries and the base for its merchant navy. Having recently undergone a refurbishment, facilities at the port have improved and include ATM's, bureau de change, restaurants, cafes, bars and a number of travel agencies selling ferry tickets. destinations served by the port include the island of Crete, the Cyclades Islands, the Dodecanese Islands, the eastern parts of Greece and parts of the northern and eastern Aegean Sea.

Mytilene Guide

The ancient Greek city of Mytilene is the capital of the island of Lesbos, which lies in the north east Aegean Sea, and also home to the island's port. Mytilene is built on seven hills and is overlooked by the Gateluzzi fortress, and has many preserved features that bear testament to its rich past and cultural history. The city has a lively night time economy and offers everything most travellers would want including lovely hotels, restaurants and recreational facilities.

Popular attractions in the city are Gateluzzi Castle, the Church of Agios Therapon with its splendid dome, and at the edge of the port, the Statue of Liberty. many of the town's residents meet up in the area around Sappho Square and also around the new southern port where there are many trendy bars and cafes that are busy all day long.

Mytilene has a port with ferries to the nearby islands of Lemnos, Chios and Ayvalik and at times Dikili in Turkey. The port also serves the mainland cities of Piraeus, Athens and Thessaloniki.
