Poros and Spetses
The Saronic Islands of Poros and Spetses are not as well-known as Hydra, but attractive in their own way.
 The main waterfront of Poros is dominated by tavernas and shops but the attractive town stacks up behind it,
 culminating in a rocky headland. Spetses is more off the beaten track, its waterfront serviced by a fleet
 of water taxis and horse-and-carriage transport. It is taverna-heaven, many of which display
 beautifully hand-painted signs. There are churches and walls and doors...
