Anafi Guide

Located in the Cyclades group of islands, the Greek island of Anafi lies to the east of the island of Thira, or Santorini. The island is popular with walkers who can take the island's old paths, sometimes up steep hills, to walk from one side of the island to the other. For visitors looking for a more relaxing way to spend their time, popular beaches on the island include Klisidi and Roukounas. One of the highest peaks in the Mediterranean, Mount Kalamos, is 420 meters above sea level and can be found on a peninsular at the eastern end of the island. On top of Mount Kalamos is the Kalamiotissa church, rebuilt in large part after an earthquake in the 1950s.

The island's port, along with the rest of the Cyclades, are connected by ferry to the ports of Piraeus and Rafina. Ferries to the other islands in the Cyclades, including Ios, Santorini, Kimolos, Naxos, Paros and Milos also depart from Anafi along with ferries to the islands of Crete, Rhodes, the Dodecanese and the East Aegean Islands.

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.
