Poros is an island pair in the south Saronic Gulf. Sferia, the smaller of the two islands, is rockier than the larger island and it also contains the city where most of the 4,000 residents live. The larger island Kalavria, is more rural and has a more lush terrain than its smaller counterpart. The two lands are separated by an isthmus but are bridged together. Culturally the Temple of Poseidon of the highlight here - you can also visit the Archaeological Museum where you will find remnants from the temple. Poros gives visitors the opportunity to do some explorative tourism in a safe and small setting, close to Athens.

Perfect for a weekend trip. Very close to Athens, you can visit Poros every time of the year as you can reach it by a car too!
