Kissamos, also known as Kastelli Kissamou, is a small town and municipality in the west of the Greek island of Crete, at the northwest end of the island. The city is now also a port and fishing harbour, with a regular ferry operating from the Peloponnese via Kythira.
On first sight, Kissamos doesn’t look like a town full of fascinating things to do, but the truth is quite opposite. Kissamos is actually a town surrounded by beautiful landscape with excellent climate and sunshine most of the year. The town is built along a wonderful sandy beach and located where the ancient city of Kissamos stood. With its attractive little harbour, lots of shops and cafeterias along the seafront, a long history and a lively atmosphere, this small town is actually quite a busy place.
However, Kissamos is not a busy tourist resort. Its development is mainly based on its wine and oil production, as well as its agricultural products.
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.
