Spetses is a Greek island in the Saronic group of islands. In antiquity the island was named “Pityonissos” and “Pityousa” from the ancient reek word “Pitys”, meaning pine tree. The name “Spetses” came from the Venetians who used to call it “Isola di Spezzie” meaning the island of aromas (spices). The island's largest town is also called Spetses and is unusual in that private vehicles are not permitted in the town's boundary. Therefore, most people either walk, take a horse-drawn carriage, or ride a motor cycle or bicycle. Beaches closest to the town include Agios Mamas in the center of town; and Kaíki (previously College) beach 1 km to the north west and Agia Marina 2 km to the south, both of which offer water-sports. Public buses can be taken in order to reach beaches further away. These include the beaches of Zogeria, Agioi Anargiroi, and Agia Paraskevi.
In the Medieval times, the island flourished with trade and the locals constructed elegant mansions that survive to this day. Spetses is also a popular weekend destination due to its proximity to Athens.
The Greek city and port of Piraeus is a major Greek port and one of the biggest in the whole of the Mediterranean. It is an important city and often considered to be a suburb of Athens, which lies just a few minutes away. Piraeus has become nothing short of a hub for the ferry network travelling all around the Aegean Sea and whilst its proximity to Athens means that it often merges imperceptibly with the Greek capital, its seafront offers a very different and distinctive appearance. Many visitors to Piraeus will find that the most appealing area of the city lies around its easterly quarter, alongside both the Mikrolimano Harbour and the Zea Marina. This seafront district is full of waterfront restaurants, bars and nightspots, and was greatly improved in time for the recent Athens Olympics, with the creation of a beautiful harbour front promenade, lined with trees and passing the medieval city walls, which offer an insight and historical information about the city's rich past.
