Poros is an island of peace, romance, and relaxation. The island’s pine trees line the rugged shores and the sandy beaches. Approaching Poros by sea you’ll see the historical clock tower atop the island’s highest hill.
The beach houses are mostly neoclassical in style, with the first built in 1463 in the area around the clock tower. Explore the town center and the Archaeological Museum. Lining the narrow streets of Poros you’ll also come across shops, cafés, taverns, and many bars playing both Greek and foreign music.
Aegina (3-hour visit)
Aegina is the land of the legendary Achilles. Visit the Temple of Aphaea, situated atop a pine-covered hill in the north-eastern part of the island. This was the prototype for the Parthenon.
When the skies are clear, you can see the Temple of Poseidon at Sounion and the Acropolis of Athens from this spot. With the Temple of Aphaea, these temples form an isosceles triangle, which was the holy triangle of ancient times.
See the church of Saint Nectarios, which houses a silver urn with the relics of St. Nectarios, the patron saint of the island.
