Piraeus (Port of Athens), Greece
Piraeus is Greece's third largest city in population and its biggest port, serving the city of Athens. First settled in the time of Themistocles, when the Long Walls were built (478 BC), the city was laid out to the plans of the architect Hippodamus. When Athens became a naval power, Piraeus gained considerably in importance. The ancient harbors of Piraeus were Zea and Munichia.

Zea, now Pasalimani, is one of the largest yacht marinas in the Mediterranean. Munichia is now a pretty harbor filled with yachts and fishing-boats and rung about with tavernas.

The commercial harbor of Piraeus is one of the most important in the Mediterranean. The city is in an industrial zone of particular importance for the Greek economy, but nevertheless its center has broad streets, spacious squares, tree-lined avenues, and parks.


Mykonos Harbor, Greece
One of the most cosmopolitan of all the Greek Islands and quite justifiably attracting visitors from all over the world, Mykonos is a contrast of rocky hills and beautiful beaches. Hora, the capital, spreads around a colorful harbor in which fishing boats nestle side by side with luxury yachts. The brilliant white cubic houses with white-washed balconies built close together with little shops and tiny churches, make up the backstreets of the town. The harbor is overlooked by a variety of tavernas, and is a popular meeting place as the sun goes down, turning the brilliant whites to beautiful shades of pinks and reds.

Agio Ana, Naxos, Greece
Naxos is an ideal island for relaxed vacations. Agios Prokopios combines the characteristic colors of Cyclades with the perfect climate and the beautiful nature.

Karavostasis/Foregandros, Cyclades
Foregandros is a small Greek island in the Aegean Sea which, together with Sikinos, Ios, Anafi and Santorini, forms the southern part of the Cyclades. Its surface area is about 12 sq miles and it has 765 inhabitants. It has three small villages, Chora, Karavostasis, and Ano Meria, which are connected by a paved road. Folegandros is part of the Thira regional unit.

Little is known about the ancient history of Folegandros. Its inhabitants were Dorians. Later it came under Athenian rule. The island was conquered in 1207 by the Venetian Marco Sanudo and remained under the rule of Venice until 1566, when it was taken by the Ottoman Turks. The Greeks reclaimed it in the 19th century.

Folegandros' landscape is varied, and includes tall cliffs and a large cave. The "capital" of the island, Chora, is built on the edge of a 650 foot high cliff. The port of Folegandros is the small town of Karavostasis. The village of Ano Meria contains a small but interesting Ecological and Folklore Museum. Among the notable beaches on Folegandros is Katergo, accessible only by boat from Karavostasis.


Nauplion, Greece
Once a powerful city-state ruled by Agamemnon, the conqueror of Troy, this hilly village now offers you a chance to soak up some history over a glass of retsina in one of its many waterfront cafés.

Navplion stands on its own rocky peninsula, its venerable fort perched brooding over the harbor, the shimmering bay a mesmerizing sight from dawn to dark. It is surely one of the most attractive spots in all Greece. This scenic city is a favorite stop for visitors to the Peloponnesians, the large leaf-shaped 'island' dangling off the Attic mainland. Glorious landscapes and antique sites characterize the whole region, and Navplion has more than its fair share of both.

In this corner of Greece, tradition prevails. Men still sit around sipping coffee from morning to midnight, the older ones invariably toying with their worry beads. Hospitality is spontaneous and well meant. Don't be surprised if a jeweler pulls out a bottle of ouzo or beer for you, even if you're only looking, or if a shop assistant hands you a bag of fresh peaches.
