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.

Thirasia Guide

The Greek island of Thirasia is a small island that is located to the west of the island of Santorini in the Cyclades group of islands. It has a population of around 250 people and are mainly employed in agriculture. The small island's cliffs are less steep than those found on Santorini but ascending its 250 steps from the port can still be quite a challenge especially during the summer when temperatures can be very high. Stunning views from the island include the caldera and the sunsets and sunrises. The island's only beach is full of pebbles and pumice and is located next to the small harbour. The island's only track will lead you to the Church of Agia Irini, which is said to have given Santorini its name (Santa Irini - Santorini).
