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.
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.
