Sep 11, 2015 - No More Magnets

After 1 ¾ hours we were back on the boat heading to Poros while lunch was served to the first seating (we were 2nd seating). After about an hour we arrived in Poros a small island where we had 45 minutes to again look at magnets. We chose to venture up the hill to the clock tower! Back on board for our buffet lunch.

After checking out of our hotel, the nicest one yet—a one bedroom suite with kitchen for 60 euro including breakfast—we drove up to the Palamidi Fortress for a commanding view of Nafplio below. Our next destination was the island of Hydra. We stopped at the Theatre of Epidavros along the way. Epidavros is the sanctuary of Asclepius, the god of medicine, and a World Heritage site. The third century theatre here is one of the best preserved classical Greek buildings with amazing...
