  • "Smooth ride"

    I booked a business class fare (VIP). The crew were courteous, the lounge very pleasant, and the tip quite relaxing. I would have preferred the complimentary drink to have been a welcome drink rather than one that was served much later. All in all, a nice experience.

  • "Efficient"

    The outter deck really is for people who likes sensations (winf and water). However, the interior of the boat is confortable and the crossing is efficient: I arrived on time in Rafina to take my flight thanks to the shuttle bus (45 minutes from arrival at the ferry terminal to the airport)

Tinos Guide

Located in the Cyclades group of islands, the Greek island of Tinos lies in the Aegean Sea and is situated close to the islands of Andros, Delos and Mykonos. Originally named Opiussa and Hydroessa in ancient times, the island is home to the Church of Virgin Mary, or Evangelistria Church, at Hora which is one of the grandest churches in the whole of Greece. The church was built on the site where the Orthodox Image of the Virgin Mary was found, following a vision by nun Pelagia, between 1823 and 1831. Of traditional architectural style, the spacious church has many arches and is made up of two floors with many other smaller buildings in its courtyard. Another popular attraction on the island is the Monastery of the Lady of the Angels at Kechrovouni which was built after three sisters had the same vision of the Virgin Mary telling them to build a monastery at a specific location at Kechrovouni, where they saw a strange light.

Tinos is connected by boat to the ports of Piraeus and Rafina and also to the islands of Andros, Syros and Mykonos, and to almost all of the Cycladic islands.

Rafina Guide

The Greek town of Rafina lies on the east coast of the Attica region of mainland Greece, on the shores of the Aegean Sea. The town is close to the town's of Artemida and Nea Makri and also to the Greek capital, Athens, which is around 25 km to the west. because of its proximity to Athens Rafina is popular with many Athenians who visit to enjoy the town's many fish restaurants that can be found lining the harbour. It is not uncommon to see the day's catch lying on beds of ice outside each restaurant.

In ancient times Rafina was named Arafinidon Alon but its history dates back to prehistoric times, but more specifically to pre-Hellenic times. In Askitario, to the south of Rafina, archaeologists have found a unique vase with a dog painted on it which has been dated back to 2,800 BC. Another significant find was near the town's port where a bronze foundry was discovered and is thought to be one of the oldest in Europe, and dates back to 1800 BC.

After the Port of Piraeus, Rafina's port is the second largest in Attica. Ferry services operating from the port depart to the southern part of Euboea and to the Cyclades islands.
