Sitia Guide

The port town of Sita is located on the Greek island of Crete which lies in the Aegean Sea. On the island, Sita is to the east of Agios Nikolaos and to the north east of Lerapetra. The town is generally not much visited by tourists and is not particularly well developed and can trace its history back to Minoan times. Excavations have been unearthed in the neighbouring site of Petras which date back to the end of the Neolithic period, 3,000 BC through to the Bronze Age, 3,000 - 1,050 BC. In support of the Petras findings, excavations at other archaeological sites on the island, such as Itanos and Mochlos, have found artefacts from Minoan times. Petras has, over its history, also been under the control of the Venetians who used it as a base for their eastern Mediterranean operations. The site was destroyed by an earthquake in 1508, and again by pirates in 1538 and by the Venetians in 1651.

The port at Sitia connects Sitia and eastern Crete with several other Greek islands as well as with the port of Piraeus on the Greek mainland. The town also has a marina which accommodates smaller fishing boats and yachts.


Rhodes Guide

The Greek island of Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese group of islands and is a popular destination for tourists, especially as it has around 300 days of sunshine every year. The island lies in the eastern Aegean Sea and is to the north of the island of Crete and to the south east of Athens. The island has all the facilities to make it the popular tourist destination that it has become and includes a beautiful coastline and has plenty of culture and a lively nightlife.

The island's main town, Rhodes Town, is very charming and visitors will see enormous medieval fortifications and narrow alleys that are simply full of character. However, the island's beaches are perhaps the biggest attraction and is what makes it so popular. many of the island's beaches are located on the eastern shore and Lindos stands out as offering the best stretch of sand and pebbles and is close to the Megali Paralia.

Rhodes is connected by ferry with daily services to Piraeus, by conventional and high speed boats. During the summer months Rhodes is also connected with the rest of the Dodecanese islands, along with Crete and Cyclades.
