Ermioni Town, Peloponnese: Ermioni is a beautiful seaside town in southern Argolida, Saronic Gulf. This lovely place with a vivid island character is built next to a pine forest at the edge of a peninsula. A hydrofoil connects Ermioni to Piraeus and the island of Hydra. Ermioni is considered a beautiful island, ideal for family vacation, for its tranquil environment and lush green surroundings.
Its charming port begins from the north and ends in Bisti at the south, whereas on the west side there is the green field of Ermioni, a vast fertile area filled with oranges, mandarins, olives and natural pomegranates of excellent quality.
