The Saronic islands are practically the long arms of Athens over the sea, being close to the capital and well served by ferries.
They are ancient as their monuments and history spell (Navplion and Egina have been temporarily capitals of the reunited Greece), and along with modernity retain that Greek flavour that has attracted many Germans and Englishmen who often visit them.
The islands are green, full of characteristic fisherman's small harbours, beaches and neoclassic buildings and stone-paved roads. Many contrasts appear: from the huge number of boats, of shops and caffes, to the horses and mules in the downtown area.
