Poros is a small island in the Saronic Gulf, 1 hr by hydrofoil from Piraeus. It is considered one of the most lovely islands in the Saronic. Poros is the perfect place for a quiet and most relaxing holiday. Poros consists of two volcanic islands, Sferia, a small rocky island where the town is located, and Kalavria, a larger and more lush island, with green hills and a nice coastline. Here you will find all the beaches and most of the hotels. The two islands are connected by a bridge.

You can also go to Pireaus by the METRO, but you have to change train once, and there

But there is a 3rd way!!!!
