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.

Thessaloniki Guide

The Greek city of Thessaloniki is located in northern Greece and is the second largest city in Greece after Athens, the Greek capital, and is widely regarded as being the cultural capital of Greece. The city is also known as Salonica and is the perfect destination to be treated to luxuries such as excellent shopping, fine dining, a lively nightlife, some good museums and a good selection of concerts and other events, especially during the summer months. Popular attractions in the city include the historical White Tower, the Byzantine city walls, traditional Greek architecture and its picturesque waterfront that is lined with cafes and shops.

Although Thessaloniki may be an archaeological city with a number of ancient sites, it is also conveniently located to some lovely beaches, which often include a good selection of water sports. Most beaches are just a short drive away, and are clustered around the Thermaikos Gulf, with the most popular beaches being Angelochori, Aretsou, Galaxias, Nea Michaniona, Perea Beach and Platania, amongst others.
