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.


Schinoussa Guide

The Greek island of Schinoussa is a small and remote island that lies in the Aegean Sea. It is located to the south of the island of Naxos and is part of the Small Cyclades group of islands, along with Koufonissia, Donoussa and Iraklia. The island's terrain is made up of a wild landscape and isolated beaches which are perfect for visitors seeking privacy, peace and tranquillity. The island does not have a wide range of tourist facilities but what it does have seems to be sufficient for the visitors it receives.

The island is easily accessible from Naxos which makes it the perfect destination for a day trip. A popular site on the island is the Church of Panagia Akathi in Chora, which is the island's most important church, and is considered the protector of the island. It's architecture is of typical Cycladic design, painted blue and white, and stands in the middle of the village.
