Kimolos Guide

Located in the Cycladese group of islands, the Greek island of Kimolos lies in the Aegean Sea, just to the north of its nearest neighbour, the island of Milos. Separating the two islands is a channel that is around 1 km wide. The island's only town is called Chorio is sits on a hill on the west side of the island. The buildings of Chorio are typical of the architectural style of the Aegean which gives off a lovely old-world charm. Houses with white washed walls and blue painted windows located along narrow cobbled streets provide the town with a deep sense of tranquillity. There are a number of places of interest in the town including the Archaeological Museum, which is opposite the Metropolitan Church of Panagia Odigitria. Contained within the museum are exhibits and artefacts showing the island's history, which includes vessels and utensils dating back to the early 7th century BC.

The island's port is located in the village of Psathi. From the port a conventional or Highspeed ferry can be taken to Piraeus. Ferries also operate to Kithnos, Serifos, Sifnos, Milos and the other Cycladic islands.

Lavrio Guide

Lavrio is a town and port located at the tip of the Attiki Peninsular and is not that popular with visitors as it doesn't seem to be mentioned very much in guidebooks about Greece. This is surprising especially given that it is home to the oldest and largest ancient amphitheatre in the country and also to a giant hole that would be popular to visitors who enjoy unexplained phenomena. In ancient times the town was known for its mining and industry and in fact the large columns from the temple of Posideon at nearby Sounion were mined in the town. There are also silver mines in the town that date back to prehistoric times.

Although the town's port is less important than the Port of Piraeus, it still plays an important role in the development of the region. The port can accommodate passenger ferries, commercial boats, fishing boats and yachts and is the perfect port of departure for passenger ferries departing to the Cyclades and to islands in the eastern Aegean.
