Porto Heli Guide

The town of Porto Heli, sometimes called Portocheli or Porto Cheli, is located in the south eastern part of Argolis in Greece. The town lies on the bay of the Argolic Gulf, around 6 km to the south of Kranidi and 40 km to the south east of Nafplio. Located around 6 km off the coast of Porto Heli is the island of Spetses. Visitors to the island's port will see many fishing boats and yachts using the harbour, especially during the summer. The town's beaches are mainly small secluded coves although there are two organised beaches. The town is a popular destination for families and is frequently visited by Athenians, many of whom have holiday homes there. The location is convenient for road trips to Ancient Epidaurus, Poros, Ermioni, Mycenae and Nafplion.

The Argolic Gulf is a gulf of the Aegean Sea off the east coast of the Peloponnese, Greece. It is about 50 km long and 30 km wide with its main port, Nafplio, located at its north western end. At the entrance to the gulf is the island Spetses. This gulf and its islands are sometimes combined with the Saronic Gulf and Saronic Islands, with the result called the Argo-Saronic Gulf and the Argo-Saronic Islands.

There are ferry connections from Portocheli to the islands of Spetses, Hydra and Poros, and to Ermioni and Piraeus.

Athens (Piraeus) Guide

The Greek city and port of Piraeus is one of the largest ports in the whole of the Mediterranean, and the third largest in the world, and has become a major hub for the ferry network that spans the Aegean Sea. Piraeus is an important city in its own right despite the fact that it is frequently considered to be a suburb of Athens, the Greek capital, which is only a very short distance away. Despite its proximity to Athens, Piraeus' waterfront has its own distinct appearance and visitors will see that the most appealing parts of the city are located around its eastern quarter, alongside both Mikrolimano Harbour and Zea Marina. A popular event in Piraeus is the Ecocinema International Film Festival which is held annually in late February and is where a number of films are screened at the Atticon Cinema and the Cineac Cinema, which are both located in the city's Town Hall Square.

Full of restaurants, bars and nightclubs, the waterfront district was greatly redeveloped in time for the Athens Olympics and as a result a new harbour front promenade was created that is lined with trees and passes the medieval city walls. The walls serve as a reminder and as an insight into the city's rich past.
