Athens - Kameni Hora (via Old Epidaurus) 164 km
Methana peninsula is situated on the Aegean volcanic arc, where there are still active volcanoes such as Nea Kameni of Santorini and Nisyros. There are several volcanoes on the peninsula, the most well known is the one near Kameni Chora.A footpath carved on red and black rocks leads in half an hour (and another 1.5 km from the village) to the crater at the top of 412 m high cone. The peak offers a magnifcent panorama of the Saronic Gulf. It is also worth visiting the medieval Favieros’ castle at Steno and the ancient citadel on a hill top near the village of Kypseli.
