Fournoi Guide

Fournoi is an archipelago of small Greek islands that lie between the islands of Ikaria, Samos and Patmos on the North Aegean. The island's main town, also called Fournoi, is also the island's main ferry port. In earlier times Fourni was called Korseon and was the site of pirates. Rich in history, the unspoilt island has many ancient remains located all around the island that date back to the Ionians, Classical and Hellenistic periods. Popular with visitors are the ruins of the ancient temple at Kamari and the remains of dwellings on the sea bed, the Cyclopean wall with traces of an Acropolis on the Hill of Ai Giorgis, the ancient quarry at Petrokopio and the shrine to Poseidon at Agia Triada. The main income source for the island's inhabitants is from fishing, agriculture and farming and of course, tourism. There are a number of beautiful beaches on the island such as Vlychada, Vitsilia, Petrokopio, Elidaki and Bali.


Nisyros Guide

The Greek island of Nisyros is one of the Dodecanese group of islands and lies in the Aegean Sea, between the island of Kos and the island of Tilos. Nisyros is regarded as one of the most beautiful islands in the region and is largely untouched by tourism. The island, which has a coastline of around 28 km, was created, according to mythology, during the war between Gods and Giants where Poseidon chased the Giant Polyvotis down to Kos, cut a part of it and threw it to his enemy, sinking him forever in to the bottom of the Aegean Sea. This rock is Nisyros and the volcano's eruptions are said to be the angry breathing of the defeated Giant.

The island's capital, and home to the island's port, is Mandraki and is one of the largest villages on Nisyros. Mandraki is characterised by charming cobblestoned streets and squares and typical Greek whitewashed two storeyed houses complete with wooden balconies. The nightlife is not very intense but you will surely have a good time in the village where there are little tavernas and some bars to enjoy.

It can be reached by ferry from Piraeus, Kos and Rhodes.
