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.


Poros Guide

Poros is an attractive coastal town located on the southeast coast of Kefalonia, one of the Ionian Islands of Greece. Situated at the crossing point where the Vohinas river enters the sea, the name ‘Poros’ actually means ‘ford’ or ‘crossing’ in Greek.

As a port town, Poros links Kefalonia with mainland Greece with daily ferry services. Local fishing boats also use the harbour to supply the area with fresh fish. Poros used to be no more than a small cluster of fishermen’s huts, until the 1953 earthquake destroyed many of the surrounding villages and a new town was built.

Nowadays, Poros is built around a marvellous landscape of lush green forests and has a population of around 1100 inhabitants. The combination of dense vegetation and crystal blue water makes Poros one of the most perfect summer holiday destinations. With a slow pace of life and a traditional Greek atmosphere, Poros is great for those who seek to escape the package tours and find something genuinely Greek.
