  • Overview You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: chinalove  
    On even the briefest Athens holiday, you can have a taste of the island life and the open sea. The islands of the Saronic Gulf are only a couple of hours away from the Greek capital.

    Three of them – Aegina, Poros and Hydra – can be visited on a one-day cruise; ask at any travel agency or your hotel.
  • Getting there? You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: chinalove  
    A daily ferry and hydrofoil service make it easy – not to mention considerably cheaper – to go on your own.

    You can expect crowds on summer weekends, as the Saronic Islands are a favourite playground for Athenians escaping the city heat.

    Note: it’s breezy on deck and squalls may occur. Take a jacket or sweater along.

      Filter By Tags:

      • Aegina
        Aegina, situated 1 ¼ hours from Piraeus, is famed for its pistachio nuts, ceramics and local wine. It also boasts the well-preserved Temple of Aphaia, dating from the 5th century BC, and many Athenians have summer houses here.
        Aegina Greece
      • Poros
        The ferry approach to Poroc – through the extremely narrow channel that separates this pine-covered island from the Peloponnese – is serenely beautiful.

        The charming port town climbs up the sides of a small hill, sporting the typical island architecture of white walls and blue woodwork. The long waterfront promenade is lined with fishing caiques and is a colourful place to inspect the day’ catch.

        This is also a popular summer resort, and offers splendid yachting, snorkeling fishing and water-skiing.

        There are many secluded coves within walking distance of the town, and a longer but pleasant hike (5km/3 miles) will bring you to the remains of a temple to Poseidon where Demosthenes, the famous Athenian orator, committed suicide rather than surrender to one of Alexander the Grea’s generals in 322 BC.

        Poros lies 2 ½ hours by ferry from Athens, and 1 ¼ hours from Aegina.
        Poros, 180 20, Greece
      • Epidaurus Theatre
        Built in the 4th century BC, it is the best preserved of all the ancient theatres in Greece. The limestone benches sat 12,000 spectators, and the acoustics are so perfect that if you stand at the top you really can hear a pin drop down in the orchestra. Greek drama is still performed here every summer.
        Epidaurus Theatre Epidavrou Tripolis, Epidavros 210 52, Greece
      • Nautical Museum of Greece
        Located past the cafes along the Zea marina, the entrance to the Hellenic Maritime Museum is marked by the black conning tower of a submarine. The museum traces the nautical history of Greece from an ancient times to the present and includes graphic displays of great naval battles. Remnants of the Long Wall fortifications built by Themistocles in the 5th century BC are incorporated in the building.
        Nautical Museum of Greece Akti Themistokleous 12, Pireas 185 37
      • Archaeological Museum of Piraeus
        Archaeological Museum of Piraeus is located nearby Zea Marina.

        It is a spacious place which displays the treasures of ancient shipwrecks around the harbor. The upper floor has three magnificent Bronzes – Athena of Piraeus with owls and griffins on her helmet, a handsome Apollo, and Artemis the huntress. In an adjoining room you’ll find the marble remnants of the massive Kallithea monument.
        Archaeological Museum of Piraeus Char. Trikoupi 31, Pireas 185 36
      • Vouliagmeni Beach

        The resort of Vouliagmeni is an upmarket place, with a yacht club and deluxe hotel complex. Also here is a public beach with water-skiing facilities, and you can charter a fishing caique at the marina. The town is named after a sulphur-springs lake, which has been converted into a spa, where the warm, lime-coloured waters are supposed to be good for muscular aches and skin ailments.

        Between the lake and Varkiza you’ll find parking niches dotted along the highway from where you can climb down to the scores of rocky covelets which decorate the coastline. This coastal stretch is not recommended for either children or poor swimmers, but the lovely beach at Varkiza, with its pistachio trees growing almost to the shore, is perfectly safe.

      • Voula

        20km/12 miles from Athens has a National Tourist Organisation (EOT) beach, less luxurious than say Astir beach but well run and with a lovely view over the bay.

        It’s also much quieter than Astir.

        Voula, Greece
        A friendly, family-run restaurant at Mikrolimano, serving a good selection of fresh fish in a water-front setting.
        ΑΡΓΥΡΟΣ ΑΘΑΝΑΣΙΟΣ ΕΥΑΓΓΕΛΟΣ Akti Koumoundourou 32, Pireas 185 33
      • Mikrolimano
        Further east of Piraeus lies the picturesque Mikrolimano, a small semi-circular harbor for fishing boats. This small bay is lined with canvas covered outdoor restaurants serving up fresh seafood. Some are rather expensive, but the are very popular with Greek patrons.
