Athe­ni­ans and tourists boarded fer­ries for the Aegean is­lands at the port of Pi­raeus yes­ter­day as the ex­o­dus for the is­lands starts to reach its an­nual peak. Pi­raeus is brac­ing for its busiest pe­riod of the year just days af­ter hun­dreds of refugees who had been camp­ing around the port were re­lo­cated to state-run fa­cil­i­ties in cen­tral Greece. Fer­ries leav­ing Pi­raeus and other ports have been al­most full to ca­pac­ity as de­mand for the Aegean is­lands re­mains high.
