Limnos Guide

The Greek island of Limnos, sometimes called Lemnos, is the 8th largest island in Greece and lies in the Aegean Sea. The island's main towns are Myrina on the island's west coast and Moudros on the east coast, on the shores of a large bay in the middle of the island. Myrina is the island's capital and port and is characterised by its pretty, traditional, paved alleys, its old stone mansions, its coastal promenade and its Byzantine Castle which overlooks the town. The castle is located on a steep, rocky, peninsular on a hillside where visitors can often see small deer grazing. The island has many things to do and see including the Petrified Forest near the town of Moudros where it is possible to see fossilised tree trunks, leaves, fruit and palm tree roots that are around 20 million years old. Also worth visiting is the prehistoric settlement of Poliochni which is thought to be the oldest Neolithic city in Europe. There is a rectangular building there that has a double row of stepped seats that resembles a parliamentary architectural structure. It is because of this that it is thought to be the oldest parliament discovered in the world.

There are ferry connections from Myrina to the islands of Agios Efstratios, Lesvos and Samothrace (in the summertime only) and with the mainland to the ports of Piraeus and Lávrio (Athens area) Thessaloniki and Kavála.


Athens (Piraeus) Guide

The Greek city and port of Piraeus is one of the largest ports in the whole of the Mediterranean, and the third largest in the world, and has become a major hub for the ferry network that spans the Aegean Sea. Piraeus is an important city in its own right despite the fact that it is frequently considered to be a suburb of Athens, the Greek capital, which is only a very short distance away. Despite its proximity to Athens, Piraeus' waterfront has its own distinct appearance and visitors will see that the most appealing parts of the city are located around its eastern quarter, alongside both Mikrolimano Harbour and Zea Marina. A popular event in Piraeus is the Ecocinema International Film Festival which is held annually in late February and is where a number of films are screened at the Atticon Cinema and the Cineac Cinema, which are both located in the city's Town Hall Square.

Full of restaurants, bars and nightclubs, the waterfront district was greatly redeveloped in time for the Athens Olympics and as a result a new harbour front promenade was created that is lined with trees and passes the medieval city walls. The walls serve as a reminder and as an insight into the city's rich past.
