A favourite of Athenians for short escapes and day-trips, Poros is located just off the coast of the Peloponnese, near the Galatas resort and the famous Lemon Tree Forest. The island is home to many historical, contemporary attractions and beautiful beaches, and is easily accessible by land or sea.

Populated since the time of the Mycenaeans, this lush green island, formerly known as Kalavria, reached its summit during the Archaic and Classical eras, as evidenced by the fifth-century remains of the Temple of Poseidon.

The island’s beauty has moved many writers and poets, among them Cosmas Politis, George Seferis, Costis Palamas, and American author Henry Miller.
