Chios Guide

The Greek island of Chios is the 5th largest Greek island in the Aegean Sea and is located around 7 km off the Anatolian coast and is separated from Turkey by the Chios Strait. Chios Town was constructed around the old harbour and medieval castle, which were constructed under Venetian and Ottoman rule. Some remains have been found which date back to 2,000 BC. Popular attractions on the island include the Chios Byzantine Museum, the Archaeological Museum of Chios, its medieval villages and the 11th century monastery of Nea Moni which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The island is mainly mountainous although there are a few valleys to be found in the south and east parts of the island. Overlooking the northern part of the island is Mount Pelineo with its highest peak, Profitis Helias, at 1,297 meters above sea level. The island has a typical Mediterranean climate with mild winters and warm, dry, summers and is known for its picturesque landscape.

Chios, and the other islands in the East Aegean, are generally connected to the ports of Piraeus and Rafina, the Cycladic islands including Syros, Tinos, Mykonos and Andros and also to the island of Rhodes. Your journey to and from the island will either be by conventional of Highspeed ferry with journey times of between 5 1/2 hours and 9 1/2 hours depending on ferry company and ferry itinerary.

Athens (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 as a reminder and as an insight into the city's rich past.
