Evdilos Guide

Located on the Greek island of Ikaria in the North Aegean Sea, Evdilos is a village that was originally the first capital of the island. However, today the charming village with its small port is an important port town and the centre of the northern, central and western Ikaria. The village is characterised by narrow streets, old mansions and is regarded as perhaps one of the most architecturally traditional settlements on the island.

The town's port serves the north side of the island and is one of two ports serving Ikaria, with the other being Agios Kirykos. From the port there are daily ferry services to Samos and Piraeus and is linked to the other islands and ports serving commercial vessels visiting the island. The port is a short distance from the town centre where visitors can find shops, hotels, villas and restaurants. Adjacent to the port there is a marina serving small ships, boats and fishing boats. The port is located around 35 km from the island's airport.

Kavala Guide

The Greek city of Kavala is the capital and main port of the Kavala region and is built on the slopes of Mount Symvolo, and is regarded as one of the most picturesque cities in Greece. By analysing the archaeological artefacts found, the city is able to trace its history back to Prehistoric times. The city's original centre was restricted to the Panayia district which has been inhabited since the 7th century BC. At the beginning of the 16th century the city expanded and managed to maintain its new borders until 1870 although the city as can be seen today only really began to form after 1928.

The cities fortunes were in large part a result of its important location, its port and to its natural defences on the peninsular, on which the old city was built. Wandering around the city visitors will be struck by its neoclassical mansions and large tobacco warehouses which are a physical symbol of the city's recent past. In the “Mecca of tobacco” as Kavala was named in the past, thousands of tobacco workers earned their living.

From the city's port ferries operate to Agios Efstratios, Limnos, Lavrio, Kirikos, Chios, Karlovassi, Psara, Vathi and Mytilene.
