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.

Vathi Guide

Samos Town, or Vathi, is the capital of the Greek island of Samos which lies in the beautiful Aegean Sea. The town is situated on the eastern shores of the island and is constructed around a horse shoe shaped bay. Ano Vathi, the old town, was built like an amphitheatre around the island's natural harbour, and is the island's main port. Strolling around the town visitors will be charmed by its authentic narrow streets, lined with neoclassical buildings, that contains an archaeological museum and shops selling crafts and jewellery. Contained in the Archaeological Museum visitors will see a collection of the largest surviving examples of Kouros sculpture. Also in the town, and perfect for relaxing in, are a good selection of waterfront tavernas and cafes.

From the town's port, ferry services operate to the Greek mainland and to many other Greek islands with conventional and high speed ferries. Destinations include Piraeus, Icaria, Chios, Mytiline, the Cyclades, the islands of the North Aegean and the Dodecanese Islands.
