Greek Islands / Ilhas Gregas

The Greek Islands are beautiful. I spent one holiday moving between some of the islands and it was super easy. I did not have to pre-book anything. I decided when I got there, although, of course, I had an idea about which islands I wanted to visit. I checked some of the ferry companies, and bought the tickets. It was easy. I started my journey from the port of Rafina, but you can go from Piraeus as well.

As ilhas gregas sao lindas. Eu fui em algumas ilhas e foi super facil. Nao tive que reservar nada antes. Eu decidi tudo quando cheguei  lá, claro que tinha uma ideia de que ilhas iria visitar. Fiz uma pesquisa sobre as companhias e comprei os tickets. Foi facil. Comecei minha jornada pelo o porto de Rafina, mais você pode pelo porto de Pireus também

The Blue Star ferries company is one of the cheapest, and you can organise all the tickets at the airport in Athens ( www.bluestarferries.com) , but there a lots of other ones, and speed boats as well.

O Blue star Ferries e uma das companhias mais baratas, e você pode organizar as passagens no aeroporto em Atenas  ( www.bluestarferries.com) , mais há muitas outras companhias e speed barcos também.

The islands that I went to were all part of the Cyclades: Tinos, Mykonos, Delos and Andros. The best port for these islands is Rafina, it had the best timetable. You can catch a bus that goes to Rafina from Athens airport.

As Ilhas que fui foram Cyclades Islands. Tinos, Mykonos, Delos e Andros. Para essa ilhas o melhor porto de partida foi Rafina, tinha os melhores horários. Você pode pegar um ônibus que vais do aeroporto de Atenas até Rafina.

The Island of Tinos is quite a pretty island. It’s a lot cheaper than Mykonos. It’s only twenty minutes from Mykonos by speed boat. This Island is very famous for its pilgrimages. It has a famous church Panagia Megalochari (the Blessed Virgin Mary). You can stay here and do a day trip to Mykonos.

Mykonos is a very glamourous island. It’s famous for its beautiful beaches and scenery.  It has some of the best examples of Cycladic architecture and a spellbinding attraction for visitors. Stroll around its narrow marble streets and admire whitewashed houses with colourful doors and window frames, bougainvillea trees in purple bloom and hidden churches.

Delos is a Greek island in the Cyclades archipelago which was both an influential political force and, with its sanctuary to the god Apollo, an important religious centre in the Archaic and Classical periods. The island was also a major commercial and trading centre in the 2nd and 1st centuries CE.

The Beautiful Island of Andros is not very far from Athens, and it’s very polular with Greek tourists. Ormos beach, on the eastern side, is great for windsurfing. Chora is the main village of Andros, distinguished by its gorgeous architecture and elegant mansions. Due to its rich marine heritage in the past century, the locals constructed impressive mansions all over the island.
