Athens (Piraeus) Guide

The port city of Piraeus in Greece lies on the Saronic Gulf in the Attica region of the country and forms part of the Athens urban area, with the centre of Athens located some 12 km from the port. The centre of Piraeus is generally congested with traffic and tends not to be place where tourists would go. The area has many of the facilities you would expect of a non-tourist town: banks, public buildings, pedestrian areas, shopping streets and the like. The area around Zea Marina and Mikrolimano Harbour are perhaps the most attractive part of Piraeus and have a good selection of restaurants, cafes and bars.

Piraeus is Greece's main port and the largest in Europe and the third largest in the world. Unsurprisingly, it is the hub of Greece's maritime industries and the base for its merchant navy. Having recently undergone a refurbishment, facilities at the port have improved and include ATM's, bureau de change, restaurants, cafes, bars and a number of travel agencies selling ferry tickets. destinations served by the port include the island of Crete, the Cyclades Islands, the Dodecanese Islands, the eastern parts of Greece and parts of the northern and eastern Aegean Sea.


Chania Guide

Chania, the second largest city on the Greek island of Crete is a city that has hosted many different civilisations during its history. The city is built on the area of Minoan Kidonia, at the end of the Homonym Gulf between the Akrotiri and Onicha peninsulas, and was the former capital city of Crete between 1847 and 1972. Today it is the second largest city on Crete after Heraklion and is the capital of the Homonym prefecture. The Old Town's maze of alleys and streets are lined with beautiful Venetian mansions, churches, fountains and historical monuments which are all popular with visitors.

The Venetian port lies at the heart of the old town and is where visitors can still see Venetian buildings sit alongside Turkish buildings that were built later. On the east of Palea Poli is Splantzia district which is built on the site of the former Turkish district and is where you will find Aghii Anargiri Church, which is the only Orthodox church which had received permission to operate during the Venetian and Turkish occupations of the island. Also in the area is Sintrivani Square. The Neoria district of the city is where the former port was located and is also where Venetian shipyards were located in the 14th and 16th centuries.

From the port, ferry services connect Chania to the port of Piraeus, the Cycladic Islands and to the Dodecanese Islands.
