Ban on Sailing Still in Effect on Tuesday

December 20, 2022

ATHENS – Sailing bans were in force at the ports of Piraeus, Rafina, and Lavrio on Tuesday morning, with ships forbidden to set sail for the Cycladic islands, the Dodecanese islands, and Crete due to the strong winds of up to 9 on the Beaufort scale in many parts of the Aegean Sea.

Ferries to the Saronic Gulf were operating as usual but the Rafina-Marmari, Agia Marina-Nea Styra and Thassos-Keramoti ferry lines were all closed.

Passengers intending to travel by ship on Tuesday are advised to contact local port authorities and travel agencies before setting out, in case there are cancellations or modifications to scheduled departure times and routes due to the bad weather.


THESSALONIKI - Israelis, Americans, French and Cypriots are just some of the foreign visitors who visited the renovated Agora Modiano, in the centre of Thessaloniki, in its first two months of operation.
