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.

Sigri Guide

Sigri is a small fishing village on Lesbos Island, Greece. Located near the western tip of the island, Sigri is the most remote tourist destination in Greece, known as the land that time forgot. The name of Sigri comes from the Latin word ‘secro’ which means safe harbour.

Though small in size, Sigri has much to offer. The village itself is built on a peninsula of land with the sea on both sides.

The Turkish Castle in the village was built in 1757 during the ottoman period in order to protect the port of Sigri. This little harbour is always filled with colourful fishing boats and even larger vessels such as cruise ship sized ferries coming from the mainland.

Clustered around the harbour are some lovely summer houses and hotels connected by small cobbled and paved streets. The beautiful sandy beaches here have a striking contrast with the rockier and pebbled beaches to the east of Lesbos.

If you’re looking for a place to enjoy peace and quiet, then the small haven of Sigri would be the perfect destination.
