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.
The Greek island of Psara lies in the Aegean Sea to the west of Chios and is home to around 400 inhabitants and is the largest of an island cluster that includes seven islets. The smaller islets include Antipsara, uninhabited today, Kato Nisi, Aye Nikolaki, Daskalio, Psaronisi and Nisopoula. Collectively they are a popular location for tourists who enjoy the island's peach and tranquillity, good range of accommodation and some lovely tavernas.
There is only one inhabited settlement on the island and is located by the sea and is also home to the island's only port. Houses in the village are of typical Greek architecture and with some of the public buildings providing visitors with an insight into the island's illustrious past.
Psara and the East Aegean Islands in general are connected to the port of Piraeus. From Psara you can also visit the nearby Cycladic islands of Syros, Tinos, Mykonos and Andros.
