Located in the Peloponnese region of Greece, Ermioni is a popular tourist resort and small port town which lies to the south east of Argolis. The port is situated on the Aegean Sea coast and faces the islands of Hydra and Dorkos. Rising up on a hillside, the old town has amazing views to nearby islands and a fertile plain rich in pomegranates, citrus fruits and olive groves. Below the old town, the northern bay forms a natural harbour for the busy little port where you can observe fishermen clean their nets and also find some small shops and cafes. If you are looking for a good selection of restaurants, Mandraki lies to the south of Ermioni and has a number of quayside restaurants, bars and traditional tavernas where you can see their octopuses hanging outside to dry in the sun.
The town and its surrounding area can trace its origins back to at least the times of Homer. During the classic era it was well known for its shipbuilders and also for the production of porphyra, a very important red dye which was used for the colouring of the uniforms of many armies including that of Alexander the Great.
Ermioni is connected to Piraeus by ferry.
The Greek city and port of Piraeus is one of the largest ports in the whole of the Mediterranean, and the third largest in the world, and has become a major hub for the ferry network that spans the Aegean Sea. Piraeus is an important city in its own right despite the fact that it is frequently considered to be a suburb of Athens, the Greek capital, which is only a very short distance away. Despite its proximity to Athens, Piraeus' waterfront has its own distinct appearance and visitors will see that the most appealing parts of the city are located around its eastern quarter, alongside both Mikrolimano Harbour and Zea Marina. A popular event in Piraeus is the Ecocinema International Film Festival which is held annually in late February and is where a number of films are screened at the Atticon Cinema and the Cineac Cinema, which are both located in the city's Town Hall Square.
Full of restaurants, bars and nightclubs, the waterfront district was greatly redeveloped in time for the Athens Olympics and as a result a new harbour front promenade was created that is lined with trees and passes the medieval city walls. The walls serve has a reminder and as an insight into the city's rich past.
