The Greek town of Lavrio, or Laurium as it is sometimes called, is in the Attica region in the south east of the country. The town is situated around 60 km to the south east of Athens, the capital of Greece, and to the north of Cape Sounio. With a long history in mining for silver, the town was at one time a major source of income for the State. The town's seaport is a suburb of Athens but is of lesser importance than the port of Piraeus. The town's residential area is laid out in a grid system with port at the town's heart. It is now connected to the new Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport and the Attiki Odos highway. The nearest towns are Sounion and Keratea.
The port of Lavrio is home to many passenger ferry services, yachts, commercial boats and fishing vessels. because of its location, ferries departing the port have a shorter crossing time to the islands in the Cyclades and the eastern Aegean islands which makes it more convenient than other nearby ports. From Lavrio a ferry can be taken to Kea (Tzia), Kythnos, Syros, Mykonos, Paros, Naxos, Ios, Sikinos, Folegandros, Kimolos, Milos, Amorgos, Kythnos, Tinos and Andros.
The Greek island of Sikinos is one of the Cyclades group of islands and lies between the islands of Ios and Folegandros. Unlike many of its Greek island neighbours, Sikinos does not attract large numbers of visitors and therefore has managed to retain a great deal of its Greek charm. Chora is the island's capital and is one of the smallest and most picturesque villages in the Cyclades and has traditional Cycladic architecture and is built on the slopes of a mountain and comes complete with stunning views of the Aegean Sea. Popular attractions on the island include the Monastery of Episkopi which was first thought to be an ancient temple of the God Apollo but is now known to have the signs of Roman mausoleum architecture. It was built in the 3rd century AD and was modified to a Christian church, complete with a dome and bell tower, in the 17th century.
From the port is Sikinos, ferry services operate to the port of Piraeus with a crossing time of around 3 hours and 30 minutes by high speed ferry and 7 hours and 30 minutes by conventional ferry. Sikinos is also connected by boat with the islands of Folegandros. Ios, Santorini, Serifos, and Sifnos.
