Sitia Guide

The port town of Sita is located on the Greek island of Crete which lies in the Aegean Sea. On the island, Sita is to the east of Agios Nikolaos and to the north east of Lerapetra. The town is generally not much visited by tourists and is not particularly well developed and can trace its history back to Minoan times. Excavations have been unearthed in the neighbouring site of Petras which date back to the end of the Neolithic period, 3,000 BC through to the Bronze Age, 3,000 - 1,050 BC. In support of the Petras findings, excavations at other archaeological sites on the island, such as Itanos and Mochlos, have found artefacts from Minoan times. Petras has, over its history, also been under the control of the Venetians who used it as a base for their eastern Mediterranean operations. The site was destroyed by an earthquake in 1508, and again by pirates in 1538 and by the Venetians in 1651.

The port at Sitia connects Sitia and eastern Crete with several other Greek islands as well as with the port of Piraeus on the Greek mainland. The town also has a marina which accommodates smaller fishing boats and yachts.


Karpathos Guide

The Greek island of Karpathos lies in the Aegean Sea and is the second largest of the Dodecanese group of islands. The island sits between the neighbouring islands of Crete and Rhodes and is widely regarded as being one of the most spectacular of all the Greek islands. Unlike many of its neighbours, and probably as a result of its relatively remote location, Karpathos only began to develop in the last couple of decades. However, the development that has taken place is largely restricted to the southern parts of the island. The northern and central parts of the island have retained their authenticity and are largely unspoilt, with pretty little villages that seem miles away from tourism. Perhaps the island's most famous features are its beaches with golden sand and crystal clear waters. The island is popular with families and also with hikers who like to explore the many trekking paths that criss cross the island.

Ferries from Karpathos depart to the ports of Piraeus, Rhodes, Heraklion, Milos, Anafi, Sitia, Santorini, Chalki and Kasos.
