Athens (Piraeus) Guide

The port city of Piraeus in Greece lies on the Saronic Gulf in the Attica region of the country and forms part of the Athens urban area, with the centre of Athens located some 12 km from the port. The centre of Piraeus is generally congested with traffic and tends not to be place where tourists would go. The area has many of the facilities you would expect of a non-tourist town: banks, public buildings, pedestrian areas, shopping streets and the like. The area around Zea Marina and Mikrolimano Harbour are perhaps the most attractive part of Piraeus and have a good selection of restaurants, cafes and bars.

Piraeus is Greece's main port and the largest in Europe and the third largest in the world. Unsurprisingly, it is the hub of Greece's maritime industries and the base for its merchant navy. Having recently undergone a refurbishment, facilities at the port have improved and include ATM's, bureau de change, restaurants, cafes, bars and a number of travel agencies selling ferry tickets. destinations served by the port include the island of Crete, the Cyclades Islands, the Dodecanese Islands, the eastern parts of Greece and parts of the northern and eastern Aegean Sea.

Chios Guide

The Greek island of Chios lies in the north east Aegean Sea and is located close to the coast of Turkey and is opposite the Erithrea Peninsular, from which it is separated by the Chios Strait. The island has a land area of around 840 sq. km and a population of roughly 54,000 people. The island's capital city is also called Chios and is home to approximately half of the island's population. Popular visitor attractions on the island include the Byzantine Museum which is located in a former Ottoman mosque and is where you can see a perfect copy of the famous painting "Massacre at Chios" by Delacroix. Also on the island is the famous library named after Adamantios Korais and contains his personal collection of 1,300 historical volumes and the Naval Museum where you can see replicas of sailing ships and steam boats.

Alternatively, take a stroll through the pretty and narrow streets of Kaloplitis and take in the splendour of the former ship owners' mansions that stretch all the way to Tampakika. Here you will find Ioustiniani Palace and the mills that once belonged to the old tanneries.

From Chios, ferry services operate to Piraeus, Thessaloniki, Kavala, Rhodes, Samos, Lemnos, Mytilene, Oinousses, Psara, and Cesme.
