Located in the western Cyclades group of islands, the Greek island of Kythnos lies between the islands of Kea and Serifos and is around 100 km from the port of Piraeus. The small island, with a land area of around 100 sq. km and a coastline of 100 km, has about 100 beaches although many of them are inaccessible by road. The main villages on the island are called Messaria or Kythnos (known as Chora to the locals) and Dryopis or Dryopida (known as Chorio to the locals). Both villages are characterised by steep, winding streets, often stepped, which are often too narrow for cars. The architectural styles of both villages are slightly different from each. Both are pretty but Chora's houses are mainly flat-roofed, typical of the Cyclades, while Chorio's houses tend to have sloping roofs. An interesting attraction in Chora is its large Greek Orthodox Church.
The island can be reached by ferry from Piraeus and Lavrio. The crossing from Piraeus takes around 3 hours by conventional ferry and 1 hour by high speed ferry. The crossing from Lavrio takes roughly 2 hours. Kythnos is also connected by ferry to the islands of Serifos, Sifnos, Milos, Santorini, Sikinos, Folegandros and Kea.
The Greek island of Serifos lies in the Aegean Sea and is one of the Cyclades group of islands. It is a popular island with tourists for a relaxing vacation and is characterised by its tradition whitewashed villages, pretty harbours, golden beaches and lovely landscapes. Compared to some other Greek islands, Serifos does not attract particularly high numbers of tourists which means that it has managed to retain some of its authentic Greek atmosphere. Visitors to the island have the choice of lazing on one of its 72 beaches or alternatively they can go cycling or hiking on one of the seven trails on the island. There is also a World War II shipwreck which is popular with scuba divers and a 16th century fortress-like Monastery of Taxiarches. The most picturesque spot on the island is the village of Chora and has been built on the slopes of a mountain that offers locals and visitors lovely views of the Aegean Sea. The most visited places on the island are the towns of Livadi and Livadakia.
The island is accessed by conventional and high speed ferries. During the summer months, there are ferries that connect Serifos with other nearby islands, such as Sifnos, Naxos, Paros, Santorini and Kythnos.
