Kythira Guide

Kythira is a Greek island known as the “Island of sweet secrets”, between Peloponnese and Crete, opposite the south-eastern tip of the Peloponnese peninsula.

Kythira is an island with remarkable natural beauty, wondrous beaches and many sightseeing attractions.

Some of the best beaches in Kythira include Fyri Ammos which was awarded Blue Flag for its crystal clear waters; Kapsali with dual bays overlooking the grand castle of Chora; Paleopolis, the largest beach on the island and the small but picturesque beach of Chalkos.

The marvellous Byzantine castle city of Paleochora, the Venetian castles of Chora and Mylopotamos, as well as the Katuoni, the largest stone bridge in Greece showcase the long and varied history of Kythira and the influence of many civilisations and cultures.

Kythira is also famous within Greece for its thyme honey as well as some small-scale cultivation of vegetables and fruit.

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.
