The Saronic Archipelago in the Ionian Sea is a popular weekend destination for the Athenians. The volcanic island of Poros lies close to the Peloponnese. Its landscape, which is dominated by picturesque hills and lush greenery, is even more beautiful due to narrow, charming streets, bustling taverns and shops with colorful souvenirs. Life on Poros is bustling mostly in the vicinity of the port that is visited by crowds of tourists. Sailing enthusiasts can moor their yachts in a lively marina and walk around the town on foot, cycle by bike or ride a scooter. Tourists may also can go to the top of the pine-covered hill and admire the clock tower.
