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.

Leros Guide

Leros is a Greek island and is one of the Dodecanese group of islands and lies between the islands of Patmos and Kalymnos. Legend has it that Leros is where the goddess Artemis would go hunt as it was home to a large population of deer. The island's long history can easily be observed in the many ancient monuments that are spread around the island. Popular attractions include the Medieval Castle and the island's interesting museums. The most visited places on the island are Alinda and Agia Marina but for the more adventurous, a drive around the island will not disappoint as there are a number of lovely beaches with crystal clear waters waiting to be discovered. The island is also popular with scuba divers who visit to explore the many ancient shipwrecks that lie on the seabed around the island.
