Poros Things to Do

  • General visit

    Poros is a bit further than Aegina, with a good connection to the Piraeus port. Pine forests around the beautiful beaches, the picturesque monastery of Zoodochous Pigis, as well as its narrow streets.

  • Where to moor?

    The town of Poros is popular, especially between the Athenians who have yachts - or rent them.During the summer weekends, it will be difficult to find an empty space...

  • Romance...

    This is the view of the port of Poros and the town of Galatas in the mainland from the clocktower.A romantic place, surely...

  • The jewel of Poros

    The clocktower (built in 1927) is the first image of Poros, as it is located at the top of the hill in the centre of the town, among pine trees.It rises above the town of Poros and rings every hour.

  • Night falls...

    ...and Poros becomes even more fascinating, especially if you start walking in its narrow streets and observe everything around you...

  • Double character

    The town has a cosmopolitan and traditional colour at the same time.There are many taverns, cafeterias, tourist shops, bars next to the coast.

  • How to become poor...

    It is a part of a house, in a neo-classical style. For "walking cameras" as me, Poros town is an ideal place to spend some films in a short time...

  • More bread...

    These pigeons were waiting to have their meal too, small pieces of bread and cheesepie, next to the sea.

  • Fishermen...

    I don't know why, but I'm jealous of them, their life sounds so quiet and peaceful to me, although it has its difficulties too.Maybe I was a fisherman in my previous life...

  • Common colours...

    This is one of the few two-floored houses of the town.Most of them are by the sea and big, in a neo-classical style.

  • Model again...

    Sometimes Andreas leaves his weapon -the camera- and is being photograghed too.I think it would be better for him just to take pictures...

  • So usual...

    Such pictures are common in any greek island, Poros couldn't be the exception.I wonder how postmen can find the right address all the time...

  • The Archaeological Museum

    It was constructed in 60's, located next to the sea. The museum is small and has two floors.The exhibits are objects from excavations in ancient Kalavria (the main part of the island) and Troizinia.Unfortunately (for me), pictures -even without flash- are not allowed...

  • The opposite view

    This is the view from the highest point of the town of Poros, the top of the hill where the clocktower stands...

  • So close...

    It is the view from Galatas, the little town in mainland. After 5' by ferries or sea taxis you are already in an island...
