Sitia Guide

The port town of Sita is located on the Greek island of Crete which lies in the Aegean Sea. On the island, Sita is to the east of Agios Nikolaos and to the north east of Lerapetra. The town is generally not much visited by tourists and is not particularly well developed and can trace its history back to Minoan times. Excavations have been unearthed in the neighbouring site of Petras which date back to the end of the Neolithic period, 3,000 BC through to the Bronze Age, 3,000 - 1,050 BC. In support of the Petras findings, excavations at other archaeological sites on the island, such as Itanos and Mochlos, have found artefacts from Minoan times. Petras has, over its history, also been under the control of the Venetians who used it as a base for their eastern Mediterranean operations. The site was destroyed by an earthquake in 1508, and again by pirates in 1538 and by the Venetians in 1651.

The port at Sitia connects Sitia and eastern Crete with several other Greek islands as well as with the port of Piraeus on the Greek mainland. The town also has a marina which accommodates smaller fishing boats and yachts.


Thira Guide

Thira is the official name of the island of Santorini, Greece and is located in the southern Aegean Sea, about 200 km southeast of mainland Greece.

Thira is essentially what remained after an enormous volcanic explosion that destroyed the earliest settlements on a formerly single island, and created the current geological caldera.

With its dramatic views, stunning sunsets and beautiful beaches, it is no surprise that Thira is hugely popular with holidaymakers.
