Psara is located 12 miles to the northwest. It can be reached by boat from the city of Chios. The island has been the site for many heroic and tragic episodes. The famous revolutionary admiral, Kanaris was born in Psara, and Psarians were among the first of all Greeks to join in the revolt against the Turks in 1821. In 1824 the Turks attacked the island and massacred more than 15.000 Greeks; only 3.000 managed to escape. The island never recovered from the complete destruction.

Today, the island is inhabited by less than 500 people, which all live in the village of Psara. The visitor can find a few cafes, snack bars and rooms to let, but no other tourist services exist.

Mykonos Island


Ιt is the cosmopolitan center of the Cyclades Complex. Its reputation has spread during the last years due to its unique landscape, its archaelogical sites, its cosmopolitan environment and its magnificent beaches.

White-washed, cube-shaped houses are scattered all over the island, narrow streets in the town, chapels and picturesque tavernas hide among art galleries and stores selling jewellery, souvenirs etc.

Trends that sweep through the international scene are born in the intense nightlife of this modern resort.

An island of tempting and tempestuous reputation such as Mykonos, with high tourism and a rather superficial lifestyle, inevitably has both fans and critics.

But even the most unsuspecting visitor immediately realizes that Mykonos is not only a crazy “bon-viveur”, but also an attractive, picturesque island with white Chora aside the crystal-clear blue waters of the Aegean Sea.

Direct international charter flights and regular domestic flights from Athens serve frequently, during summer, the airport of Mykonos.

Because it is so famous, Mykonos gets really overcrowded during high season but for those who enjoy the crowd, great fun and all night long entertainment, Mykonos is the ideal place for holidays.

Have a wonderful time...
