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.

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.
