Athens (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.


Kastelorizo Guide

Kastelorizo is a Greek island that is the smallest, and perhaps one of the prettiest, of the Dodecanese group of islands. It is located at the most eastern edge of Greece and is sometimes called by its ancient name of Megisti which it retained until the Middle Ages. During this part of the island's history the Knights of St John built Castello Rosso, with its double walls and battlements, on the rocks above the port. It is from this construction that the island now derives its name. In the island's more recent history, the fishing and shipping industries that the island participated in during the 19th century led to the island's wealth grow considerably.

The island's only populated area is in and around the picturesque Kastellorizo village which has two areas - Pigadia and Chorafia - and is characterised by its narrow cobbled alleyways and traditional colourful houses, complete with timber balconies.

Ferries from the port connect the island to Rhodes, Kos, Nisyros, Piraeus, Kalymnos, Symi and Astypalea.
