Vathi Guide

The town of Vathi is located on the Greek island of Samos, which lies in the north Aegean Sea, and is the island's largest town and capital. The town was built around a large bay and is full of Aegean colour and atmosphere which is just as well as tourism is the town's main source of income. The town is also home to one of three ports on the island and is located in the centre of the eastern part of the bay which is also called Vathi. Limin Vatheos or Kato Vathi, as the locals call it, is the most lively place on the island, especially during the summer tourist season. There have been many archaeological finds on the island that bear testament to the island's past. Popular with tourists is the historic church of Agios Spyridon, the building that housed the Parliament, the Town Hall and the Archaeological and the Byzantine Museum which are all evidence of the historic past of the island.

From the town's port, ferry services operate to the Greek mainland and to many other Greek islands with conventional and high speed ferries. Destinations include Piraeus, Icaria, Chios, Mytiline, the Cyclades, the islands of the North Aegean and the Dodecanese Islands.

Piraeus Guide

The Greek city and port of Piraeus is one of the largest ports in the whole of the Mediterranean, and the third largest in the world, and has become a major hub for the ferry network that spans the Aegean Sea. Piraeus is an important city in its own right despite the fact that it is frequently considered to be a suburb of Athens, the Greek capital, which is only a very short distance away. Despite its proximity to Athens, Piraeus' waterfront has its own distinct appearance and visitors will see that the most appealing parts of the city are located around its eastern quarter, alongside both Mikrolimano Harbour and Zea Marina. A popular event in Piraeus is the Ecocinema International Film Festival which is held annually in late February and is where a number of films are screened at the Atticon Cinema and the Cineac Cinema, which are both located in the city's Town Hall Square.

Full of restaurants, bars and nightclubs, the waterfront district was greatly redeveloped in time for the Athens Olympics and as a result a new harbour front promenade was created that is lined with trees and passes the medieval city walls. The walls serve has a reminder and as an insight into the city's rich past.
