The small Greek island of Poros is located in the southern part of the Saronic Gulf and is made up of two islands. Spharia is the southern island and Kalaureia is the northern and larger of the two islands. Spanning the narrow strait that separates the two islands is a bridge. The island is roughly 60 km to the south of Piraeus and is only 200 m from the Peloponnese on the Greek mainland. There are a few popular tourist attractions on the island including several chapels and churches located around the island with the most interesting being the Monastery of Zoodochos Pigi and the Metropolitan Temple of Saint George. The 18th century Monastery of Zoodochos Pigi is located around 4 km from Poros Town and sits in an area surrounded by pine and plane trees. The monastery is where visitors will find the graves of the famous Greek captains Tobazis, N. Apostolis and An. Miaoulis.
The island is connected to the port of Piraeus by ferry and catamaran with a crossing time of around 2 hours and 30 minutes by ferry, and 1 hour and 20 minutes by catamaran. The island is also connected to Galatas on the Greek mainland. Ferries tend to depart every 30 minutes and the trip takes 5 minutes.
The Greek town of Ermioni is located in the Peloponnese region, and lies across a peninsular and is surrounded by sea on both sides. This gives the town the feeling of an island town whilst having all of the benefits of being located on the Greek mainland. The town has been inhabited since at least the time of Homer but during the Classic era it was well known for its shipbuilding and for the production of porphyra, a important red dye which was used for colouring the uniforms of many armies including that of Alexander the Great.
Today the town is a major tourist destination and small port. The old town was built on a hillside and has lovely views of the surrounding nearby islands and fertile agricultural land where pomegranates, citrus fruits and olives are grown. The bay that sits below the town is the location of the town's natural harbour where fishermen can often be observed cleaning their nets and where visitors will find a number of shops and cafes. Mandraki, to the south, offers a good selection of quay side restaurants, bars and traditional Tavernas with their octopuses hanging outside to dry in the sun.
