Psara Guide

The Greek island of Psara lies in the Aegean Sea and is around 80 km to the north west of Chios and 150 km to the north east of Athens, the Greek capital. The island's landscape is characterised with hills and mountains, with Prophitis Ilias, at 640 meters above sea level, being the island's highest point. The island only has one small village which is also home to the island's harbour. Most of the island's residents work is linked to the sea, especially given that the island's interior is very mountainous and that tourism on the island is not particularly well established. However, popular sites on the island include the Archaeological Museum, the monastery of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary and its library and the Church of Aghios Nikolaos.

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, Andros etc.


Chios Guide

The Greek island of Chios lies in the north east Aegean Sea and is located close to the coast of Turkey and is opposite the Erithrea Peninsular, from which it is separated by the Chios Strait. The island has a land area of around 840 sq. km and a population of roughly 54,000 people. The island's capital city is also called Chios and is home to approximately half of the island's population. Popular visitor attractions on the island include the Byzantine Museum which is located in a former Ottoman mosque and is where you can see a perfect copy of the famous painting "Massacre at Chios" by Delacroix. Also on the island is the famous library named after Adamantios Korais and contains his personal collection of 1,300 historical volumes and the Naval Museum where you can see replicas of sailing ships and steam boats.

Alternatively, take a stroll through the pretty and narrow streets of Kaloplitis and take in the splendour of the former ship owners' mansions that stretch all the way to Tampakika. Here you will find Ioustiniani Palace and the mills that once belonged to the old tanneries.

From Chios, ferry services operate to Piraeus, Thessaloniki, Kavala, Rhodes, Samos, Lemnos, Mytilene, Oinousses, Psara, and Cesme.
