Thirasia Guide

Located in the Cyclades group of islands is the Greek island of Thirasia, or Therasia, and lies in the Aegean Sea to the north west of Nea Kameni, a small island formed in recent centuries following volcanic activity. Located next to the island's small harbour is a pebble beach, which is the island's only beach. The only track of the island will take you to the church of Agia Irini which is said to have given Santorini its current name (Santa Irini - Santorini).

The Cyclades are an island group in the Aegean Sea, south east of mainland Greece and a former administrative prefecture of Greece. They are one of the island groups which constitute the Aegean archipelago. The name refers to the islands around the sacred island of Delos. The Cyclades is where the native Greek breed of cat (the Aegean cat) originated.

Visitors usually get to the island by boat as a part of a volcano trip that first gets you to Nea Kameni for a visit to the crater of the volcano then at the hot springs of Palaia Kameni for swimming and then to Thirasia for a few minutes before they head to Oia for the sunset.

Lavrio Guide

Lavrio is a town and port located at the tip of the Attiki Peninsular and is not that popular with visitors as it doesn't seem to be mentioned very much in guidebooks about Greece. This is surprising especially given that it is home to the oldest and largest ancient amphitheatre in the country and also to a giant hole that would be popular to visitors who enjoy unexplained phenomena. In ancient times the town was known for its mining and industry and in fact the large columns from the temple of Posideon at nearby Sounion were mined in the town. There are also silver mines in the town that date back to prehistoric times.

Although the town's port is less important than the Port of Piraeus, it still plays an important role in the development of the region. The port can accommodate passenger ferries, commercial boats, fishing boats and yachts and is the perfect port of departure for passenger ferries departing to the Cyclades and to islands in the eastern Aegean.
