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.


Methana Guide

Methana is a Greek town that is located on the peninsula of Methana, which has two volcanic slopes and is entirely of volcanic origins and has over 30 different volcanic eruption centres. Despite this, the last volcanic eruption took place near the present day Kameni Chora in 230 BC and an underwater volcanic eruption occurred in 1700 BC and was documented by writers such as Strabo, Ovid and Pausanias. The peninsular upon the town is located is the north western most of the arc of the Aegean Islands of which the active volcanic areas are Methana, Milos, Nisyros and Santorini.

The town is connected to the port of Piraeus by ferry with a crossing time of around 2 hours. It is also connected by ferry to Poros, Aegina, Hydra, Spetses and Hermione and by hydrofoil to Poros, Aegina, Hydra, Spetses, Hermione, Porto Heli, Tolo, Nafplion and Monemvasia.
