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.

Kythira Guide

Kythira is a Greek island known as the “Island of sweet secrets”, between Peloponnese and Crete, opposite the south-eastern tip of the Peloponnese peninsula.

Kythira is an island with remarkable natural beauty, wondrous beaches and many sightseeing attractions.

Some of the best beaches in Kythira include Fyri Ammos which was awarded Blue Flag for its crystal clear waters; Kapsali with dual bays overlooking the grand castle of Chora; Paleopolis, the largest beach on the island and the small but picturesque beach of Chalkos.

The marvellous Byzantine castle city of Paleochora, the Venetian castles of Chora and Mylopotamos, as well as the Katuoni, the largest stone bridge in Greece showcase the long and varied history of Kythira and the influence of many civilisations and cultures.

Kythira is also famous within Greece for its thyme honey as well as some small-scale cultivation of vegetables and fruit.
