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 city and port of Piraeus is one of the largest ports in the whole of the Mediterranean, and the third largest in the world, and has become a major hub for the ferry network that spans the Aegean Sea. Piraeus is an important city in its own right despite the fact that it is frequently considered to be a suburb of Athens, the Greek capital, which is only a very short distance away. Despite its proximity to Athens, Piraeus' waterfront has its own distinct appearance and visitors will see that the most appealing parts of the city are located around its eastern quarter, alongside both Mikrolimano Harbour and Zea Marina. A popular event in Piraeus is the Ecocinema International Film Festival which is held annually in late February and is where a number of films are screened at the Atticon Cinema and the Cineac Cinema, which are both located in the city's Town Hall Square.
Full of restaurants, bars and nightclubs, the waterfront district was greatly redeveloped in time for the Athens Olympics and as a result a new harbour front promenade was created that is lined with trees and passes the medieval city walls. The walls serve as a reminder and as an insight into the city's rich past.
