Katapola Guide

The village of Katapola is located on the Greek island of Amorgos, which is one of the Cyclades group of islands. Amorgos is the nearest Cycladic island to the neighbouring Dodecanese group of islands. The long and narrow village of Katapola only has a few streets, where visitors will see that many of the houses are just a stone's throw from the water's edge. Located a short distance from the village you will find a few tavernas, cafes and bars. This is the perfect location for a leisurely lunch and to take in the views on offer. The best beach closest to the village is Maltezi beach which is a fairly short walk from the village.

There are frequent ferry connections from Katapola to the port of Piraeus with a crossing time of between 7 - 9 hours on a conventional ferry, depending on itinerary, and 4 - 5 hours if a fast ferry is taken. The island also has ferry services to the rest of the Cyclades, the Dodecanese islands and with the island of Astypalaia.


Heraklion Guide

Located on the Greek island of Crete, Heraklion is the island's largest city and is one of the main urban centres in Greece. The city can trace its history back to at least the 9th century AD when its development began and then later came under the influence of the Arabs, the Venetians and the Ottomans. Popular sites in the city with tourists include the fortification walls that are essentially the boundary of the old city. These were first built by the Arabs and then reinforced by the Venetians. From the seven bastions, only the Martinengo bastion survives to this day and is where visitors will find the tomb of the renowned writer N. Kazantzakis, overlooking the city. The city was also a venue during the 2004 Olympic Games, and hosted games of the football tournament.

Located in the city's old port, visitors can still see the vaulted tarsanades where ships used to be built and also the 16th century Koule Fortress. From the port, ferries depart to destinations including Santorini, Ios, Paros, Mykonos and Rhodes. There are also ferry services to the Greek mainland port of Piraeus.
