Donoussa Guide

Forming one of the Cyclades group of islands, the Greek island of Donoussa is roughly 16 km to the east of the island of Naxos and 25 km to the north of the island of Amorgos. Donoussa is quite a small island measuring around 14 sq. km, with its highest point 385 m above sea level. Due to its small size, the island has remained a virgin place for summer holidays, with few tourist facilities and much privacy. The island's main town is also called Donoussa.

Many visitors to the island while away the hours by swimming in the warm, crystal clear waters off the island's beaches. Most of the beaches are not organised and are mostly accessible on foot. For the more energetic visitor, the island is an ideal destination for trekking.

Donoussa can be reached by ferry from Piraeus or with local boat from Naxos and Amorgos. The small ferryboat Express Skopelitis works the route between Naxos, Iraklia, Schinoussa, Koufonissi, Donoussa and Amorgos three to five days a week during the summer months.


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.
