Part of the Saronic group of islands, Agistri is around 55 minutes by ferry from the port of Piraeus and only around 10 minutes from the island of Aegina. Agistri is the largest of the islets between Aegina and the coastline of Epidavros. The island has three other smaller islands located close by. These are Moni to the east, Kira to the west and Metopi to the north east. On the Kapnodochi Peninsular, on the north of the island, visitors will find some high terraces on the Mandraki Cove, where traces and foundations of ancient buildings can be found. Artefacts showing occupation from the first Hellenic Age up to the Hellenistic have been found on the surface. Stone tools have also been found which include axes, pestles, shards of obsidian and pottery, traces of geometric shards and a few proto-Corinthian.
All boats (Ferry boat & Flying Dolphins) to Agistri depart from Gate 8 at the port of Piraeus.
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 as a reminder and as an insight into the city's rich past.
