Andros Guide

Located in the Cyclades group of islands, the Greek island of Andros is the northernmost island in the Cyclades and lies around 10 km to the south east of Euboea and about 3 km to the north of Tinos. The mainly mountainous island, with some well-watered valleys, is around 40 km long and 16 km wide, at its widest point. The island's largest towns are Andros, Gavrio, Batsi and Ormos Korthiou. A popular visitor attraction on the island is the Sariza spring at Apoikia where water flows out of a lion's head. Palaeopolis, the island's ancient capital, was built into a steep hillside, and its harbour's breakwater can still be seen underwater.

ferry connections from Andros depart to the ports of Piraeus, Rafina, the other islands of the Cyclades, Ios, Santorini, Kimolos, Naxos, Anafi, Amorgos, Crete, Rhodes, the Dodecanese Islands and the East Aegean Islands. Services are either by conventional ferry of high speed ferry with crossing times of between 1.5 and 3.5 hours depending on destination, route and operator.

Rafina Guide

The Greek town of Rafina lies on the east coast of the Attica region of mainland Greece, on the shores of the Aegean Sea. The town is close to the town's of Artemida and Nea Makri and also to the Greek capital, Athens, which is around 25 km to the west. because of its proximity to Athens Rafina is popular with many Athenians who visit to enjoy the town's many fish restaurants that can be found lining the harbour. It is not uncommon to see the day's catch lying on beds of ice outside each restaurant.

In ancient times Rafina was named Arafinidon Alon but its history dates back to prehistoric times, but more specifically to pre-Hellenic times. In Askitario, to the south of Rafina, archaeologists have found a unique vase with a dog painted on it which has been dated back to 2,800 BC. Another significant find was near the town's port where a bronze foundry was discovered and is thought to be one of the oldest in Europe, and dates back to 1800 BC.

After the Port of Piraeus, Rafina's port is the second largest in Attica. Ferry services operating from the port depart to the southern part of Euboea and to the Cyclades islands.
