  • "Smooth crossing"

    Only point to make was that if taxi driver hadnt dropped us off at the Bluestar ferries office in Kos in order to check in we wouldnt have known where to go. We would have gone straight to the dock which is a fair distance from where the office was. Ither than that we werent sure if you could just check in at the little ticket office at the dock. Dont think it says anywhere on the confirmation

  • "Piraeus - Syros"

    Direct Ferries were efficient and helpful. Useful cancellation alert and rebooking service. Only issue are no alert for further cancellations and website travel alert tab doesn't have information on cancellations/alternative sailings for Greece. Blue Star Line and Blue Star 1 - Amazingly professional and smart as ever. Only issue, no cancellation/alternative sailings information on their website that I could find.

Leros Guide

The Greek island of Leros is one of the Dodecanese islands that are located in the Aegean Sea, and is around 200 km from the port of Piraeus. Leros is close to the neighbouring islands of Patmos, Lipsi, Kalymnos, Agia Kyriaki and Farmakos. The small island, measuring around 74 sq. km, has a population of just under 8,000 residents, which doubles during the summer in order to cater for visiting tourists. The beaches of Partheni and Blefouti in the north of the island are popular with tourists, as are the beaches of Gourna, Kokali and Ayia Isidoros on the west side of the island and the large bay of Alinda in the central eastern part of the island. The bay of Alinda is also home to Pangias and Crithoni beaches. The picturesque port of Agia Marina lies to the south east of the bay of Alinda, which is around a 10 minute walk to Platanos, the heart of the island.

The journey time from Piraeus to the island by ferry is around 11 hours. Leros also has also daily connections by conventional ferry and hydrofoil to most of the Greek islands of Dodecanese like Patmos, Lipsi, Samos, Kos, Rhodes, Symi and Nisyros. There are also weekly connection to some of the islands of the Cyclades like Syros and Amorgos.

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.
