Mesta Guide

The medieval settlement of Mesta is located on the Greek island of Chios, which lies in the Aegean Sea and is the fifth largest Greek island. Chios is located just 7 km off the Anatolian coast and is separated from Turkey by the Chios Strait. The cobbled ring road around Mesta is wonderful as is the Church of Taxiarxis, the village square called 'Livadi' by the locals and the village's imposing tower. The village's current residents have managed to retain a sense of village traditions that existed in the 14th century and have managed to find the right blend between history and modern life. Perhaps the most important event that takes place in the village occurs during the carnival festivities where the 'Agas' trials are presented. These are a satirical replica of the trials that used to take place under Turkish Occupation.

Mesta is home to the island's second port and provides year round ferry services to the island of Psara and Lavrion in Attica.


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.
