Peloponnese (north east)
ancient theatre at Epidaurus, with
its' 15.000 seats is one of the
most important monuments in Greece. Yet, it is still
during your staying in Greece it happens and there is a performance there,
is a must you cannot afford to lose.
peninsula of Methana extends into the Saronic Gulf a short distance
from Poros and connects with the Peloponnese through a narrow
isthmus. Methana spas, famous since antiquity, receive hundreds
of visitors every year.
The houses of the city extend along the beach and climbing up
the hill. At the quay lie the tourist shops, seafood tavernas
and confectionery shops with their famous almond cakes and milk
pies. Charming Nisaki (little island), joined with Methana through
a narrow strip of land, constitutes the anchorage of the city.
Nisaki is the Methaneans promenade for their strolls, with rich
vegetation, flowers and stone-paved alleys all the way to the
cafeteria that overlooks the beach on the other side of the narrow
Hermioni is a quaint little Greek village. Being on
a little bit of land jutting into the sea it is only 4 blocks
wide at the largest part and about a mile to a mile and a half
long. The lack of any thing resembling a sandy beach has saved
it from the mass impact of tourism but that doesn't mean there
is not great swimming there, or tourists. The swimming is great
and there is a night life in this little town.
