"Ferry Piraeus - Patmos"
As before this time again I have had an excellent time meeting new friends and old acquaintances on the line, it is easy to connect and with all the bars and food available until late at night a joy and part of the experience of travelling.

"Crossing Piraeus Patmos on the Blue Star ferry"
Excellent experience: great welcome from the staff, cabin was lovely (clean and very comfortable like the rest of the ship!) and the restaurant was pleasant too. Definitely an experience i'd like to go through again and happily recommend to anyone who is thinking of using Blue Star.

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.
The Greek island of Patmos is one of the Dodecanese group of islands and lies in the Aegean Sea, just off the west coast of Turkey. Skala is the port town on the island and is also the location of many of the most popular attractions. To the north of Skala is Meloi Beach with is picturesque and is shaded by trees. In the village of Hora there is the Monastery of St. John which is a popular site as is the Cave of Apocalypse which is thought to have been the sacred cave where Saint Ioannis heard the voice of God and wrote the Apocalypse. In the cave visitors are able to see the cross that was engraved by Saint Ioannis along with three small cracks in the rock through which the voice of God came, symbolising the Holy Trinity. The island is also mentioned in the Book of Revelation in the Bible where it states that its author, John, was on Patmos when he was given (and recorded) a vision from Jesus.
