“A life full of love, is a life full of travel”
Ermioni is a small port town in Peloponnese. The beautiful and traditional architecture it is its main characteristic. The town is easily connected by ferry to Piraeus and the islands of Hydra and Spetses that makes it so popular to visit, especially during summer.
In this post you will admire its beauty from above as it was captured by haanity‘s drone.
The submerged town of Pavlopetri is situated in shallow water between the beach of Pouda at Viglafia (near Neapoli) and the islet of Pavlopetri, opposite the island of Elafonisos. The architectural remains of this prehistoric town, visible at a depth of about three meters, were discovered in 1904 by Fokionos Negris. In 1967 the famous oceanographer Dr. Nicholas Flemming of Southampton University visited the site and subsequently published the first survey of the submerged settlement. A year later, a team of archaeologists from Cambridge University undertook the first systematic underwater survey of the ruins. In 2009, an on-going programme of exploration and excavation was begun by the University of Nottingham, the Greek Culture Ministry’s Ephorate of Underwater Antiquities and the Hellenic Centre for Maritime Research.
