The Greek town of Methana is located on a volcanic peninsular attached to the Peloponnese, a large peninsular and region in the south of Greece The peninsular is mostly made up of mountains which run along the central part of the peninsular with a small ridge to the north. There are also areas of open grassland and bush on the peninsular along with around 32 volcanoes. A particularly challenging, but rewarding, experience that some visitors choose to undertake is to climb to the largest crater. The ascent begins at Kameni Hora and follows a route on a climb that takes around 25 minutes to the crater's edge. Once there it is possible to walk on now solid red lava flows and experience the views of a world made up of savage black, red and green crags and sharp abysses. For a more relaxing experience, visitors should explore one of the town's volcanic beaches such as Nissaki Ayion Anaryiron, Limnionas and Vathy.
There are regular ferry services from Methana to the port of Piraeus with a crossing time of around 2 hours. There are also ferry services to Poros, Aegina, Hydra, Spetses and Hermione along with hydrofoil services to Poros, Hydra, Spetses, Hermione, Porto Heli, Tolo, Nafplion and Monemvasia.
The Greek island of Aegina is located in the Argo-Saronic Gulf, and is one of the Saronic group of islands. As it is close to Athens, which is around 17 miles away, it is popular with visiting Greeks from the city. The islands takes its name, according to legend, from a nymph who was the daughter of the river God Asopos, who Zeus fell in love with and took to the island. Between 1827 and 1829, when Aegina Town was the temporary capital of the new Greek State, Governor Ioannis Kapodistrias had neo-classical mansions constructed to contain his headquarters. These buildings are now popular visitor attractions. There are some lovely villages located on the outskirts of Aegina Town. These include Kypseli, Agli and Vagia.
ferries from the island's port depart to the port of Piraeus with a crossing time of around 40 minutes by Flying Dolphin and 75 minutes by conventional ferry. Aegina is also connected to the islands of Moni, Metopi, Diaportia, Lagouses, Kyra, Dorousa, Spalathonisi and Anonyma.
