The Saronic Gulf opposite of Athens is one of Greece's most undervalued destinations. Beyond the better known attractions such as Aegina, Poros, Hydra, and Epidauros, few people visit anything else.
Deeply intertwined with ancient history and legends, the Saronic Gulf is an area full of unspoiled nature, hidden archeological remains, charming villages and even has an active volcano (currently dormant) right in front of Aegina: the Methana peninsula with its lush, green mountains and hidden geologic treasures such as fumaroles and hot springs famous since antiquity.
On this tour which is available throughout the year at dates on request for small groups of up to 6 people, you will get to know some of the lesser known, but gorgeous destinations of this area, accompanied by an expert geologist or photographer from our team. It is a perfect addition to your visit to Athens or Greece in general and can be easily combined with your own program:
Starting in Athens, we pass the famous Corinth channel where a photo stop is almost mandatory, and soon reach the area of Epidaurus where we should visit the most famous and most beautiful of all Ancient Greek theaters. We then take you to the Methana peninsula where we spend two nights. The tour ends in Poros Island, one of the most picturesque of Greece and from here you can extend your visit of the Saronic Gulf (ferry connections to Aegina, Hydra etc) or return to Piraeus and on to other islands or back to town or the airport.
Truly a tour off the beaten track! ...more info
