Chania Guide

Chania is a city located on the Greek island of Crete and lies on the north coast of the island, roughly 70 km to the west of Rethymno and 145 km to the west of Heraklion. The city can be regarded as being divided into two sections. The old town is located next to the old harbour and its main square, next to the west end of Kasteli, is the Eleftherios Venizelos Square ("Syntrivani") and is the heart of the old town for tourist activities. The second section of the city is the modern, larger, part of the city and is where most of the locals live and work. The modern city's oldest district, which dates back to the 18th century, is Nea Hora (which means New Town) and is located beyond the west end of the old town.

The island is connected to the port of Piraeus, to the Cycladic islands of Ios, Santorini, Paros, Naxos, Mykonos, Amorgos and Milos and also to all of the Dodecanese islands and the east Aegean islands via a third island. Both conventional ferries and high speed ferries travel to and from the island.

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.
