Santorini (Thira) Guide

Located in the southern Aegean Sea is the Greek island of Santorini and lies around 200 km to the south east of the Greek mainland. It forms part of the Cycladic group of islands and is the only location in Europe to have a hot desert climate. A popular pastime for visitors to Santorini is to take a cruise to the island's three islets, which were created in ancient times during a volcanic eruption. The islets are called Nea Kammeni, Palea Kammeni and Thirassia and provide an excellent vantage point for visitors to see the volcano, being located to the west of the island. The island's capital is Fira and is full of typical Cycladic houses with whitewashed walls, blue domed churches and stepped streets full of shops, cafes, restaurants and bars.

The island of Santorini has two ports. The main port is Athinios, where all the ferry and commercial boats arrive. There is also the Old Port which is mostly used for cruise ships. From the main port, ferries can be taken to Piraeus, Rafina and to the other islands in the Cyclades. Both conventional and high speed ferries operate on these routes.

Sitia Guide

Sitia is located on the Greek island of Crete and is one of the island's least visited locations. Built during Venetian times, the town was later destroyed and then rebuilt by the Turks although unfortunately little remains from this period. However, there are some indications dotted around of the town and region's past which may be of interest to visitors. A popular reason to visit the town is to enjoy its long sandy beach where the swimming is good and various water sport opportunities exist. Also popular in the area are its monasteries, including Toplou, its archaeological sites, its palm forested beaches and its mountains which are wonderful to trek through.

Crete is the largest and most populous of Greek islands and the fifth largest in the Mediterranean sea, and is also one of 13 administrative regions of Greece. Crete's largest city is Heraklion and although the island has managed to retain some of its own cultural identity it still contributes significantly to the economy and cultural legacy of Greece.

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.
