With its “Little Venice” setting, the scent of pine trees and citrus fruits, and a picture-postcard seaside town, Poros is an island with a timeless charm.
Poros is known as the “Bosporus of the Saronic Gulf” because it is separated from the coast of the Peloponnese by a channel that is only 350 metres wide at its narrowest point, a calm lagoon crossed daily by innumerable boats carrying visitors to the wonderful lemon forest of Galatas opposite. All these are good reasons to search for tickets to Poros.
The island’s indented coastline and the pine-covered hills complement the idyllic landscape, a source of inspiration for great poets and writers who have sought a refuge of reflection and tranquillity here. To this day, Poros is a paradise for nature lovers and romantics a stone’s throw from legendary sites of the ancient world.
