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.

Hydra Guide

Hydra is a Greek island that lies in the Saronic Gulf and is a popular destination for visiting Athenians for the weekend due to its proximity to the Greek capital. The island's main town, also called Hydra, is built on the slopes of a hill around the port and is an impressive site. Quite unique to Hydra is that all cars and other motor vehicles are prohibited throughout the island and therefore all journeys must be made on foot, by boat or by donkey. The island's beaches, which a very popular with visitors, are mainly small coves and have crystal clear waters and tend to be surrounded by green vegetation. Perhaps the best and prettiest beaches on the island are Agios Nikolaos, Bitsi, Vlichos and Kaminia.

ferry services using the island's port depart to Piraeus with a journey time of 1 hour by high speed ferry and 3 to 3 hours and 3 minutes by conventional ferry. Hydra is also connected to the other islands in the Saronic Gulf and also with Porto Cheli.
