The town of Rafina lies on the eastern coast of the southern Greek mainland, as is approximately 30km from Athens. Rafina is a traditional port town, with many bars and seafood restaurants. Rafina is a fairly small seaside town, with some beautiful attractions such as the small church of Aghios Nicolas.
The close proximity of Rafina to Athens allows visitors to experience the lively capital and all that it has to offer, from historical sites such as the world-famous Acropolis of Athens to the many cafés and bars of the Kolonaki district.
Naxos, the largest of the Greek Cyclades islands, lies in the centre of the Aegean Sea. Naxos is a unique island that has escaped mass tourism, despite its beauty and long history. Evidence shows that man has lived on Naxos since the 4th millennium B.C.
Naxos is home to stunning scenery, from the beautiful white beaches and sand dunes covered in cedar trees, to the impressive mountains and fertile valleys further inland.
The main town of Naxos is Hora (also known as Naxos town), in the north of the island, which offers all the modern amenities you would expect from a sizeable town. Hora is home to the Ferry Port of Naxos, which is surrounded by seafront cafés and bars from which you can enjoy the view out to sea.
17 Sep 2013Not a great way to end a 30+ hours of travelling!
I booked this ferry in early April for Sept. sail date. Apparently the ferry I originally booked was cancelled and we were moved onto a new ferry scheduled to depart a few hours after the original slated time. The new ferry was much smaller and the travel took over 5 hours instead of the 3.5 hour journey we thought we were booking. No one contacted us to inform us of the changes before hand. After 3 long flights to arrive in Athens we rushed to ensure we got to the port in order to be "checked in" for our ferry at least one hour before departure as required by seajets. When we came to the port there were no clear signs to check-in. The cab driver helped by speaking Greek to locals but no one seemed to know where to go. Finally we found the small unmarked check-in desk (good luck if you don't speak or read Greek to find the place). Upon check-in the agent said the original ferry was cancelled and the new departure time was about 3.5 hours of our arrival. We sat in the hot sun with our luggage and hated life. The ferry did arrive on time but it was extremely small and cramped. And as mentioned before it was much longer than originally scheduled. We would not recommend them based on the lack of notification beforehand. If we had known we would have stayed longer at the airport in the air conditioning or would have done something else with the time instead of waiting hours in the hot sun.
