Fournoi Guide

Fournoi is an archipelago of small Greek islands that lie between the islands of Ikaria, Samos and Patmos on the North Aegean. The island's main town, also called Fournoi, is also the island's main ferry port. In earlier times Fourni was called Korseon and was the site of pirates. Rich in history, the unspoilt island has many ancient remains located all around the island that date back to the Ionians, Classical and Hellenistic periods. Popular with visitors are the ruins of the ancient temple at Kamari and the remains of dwellings on the sea bed, the Cyclopean wall with traces of an Acropolis on the Hill of Ai Giorgis, the ancient quarry at Petrokopio and the shrine to Poseidon at Agia Triada. The main income source for the island's inhabitants is from fishing, agriculture and farming and of course, tourism. There are a number of beautiful beaches on the island such as Vlychada, Vitsilia, Petrokopio, Elidaki and Bali.

Kalymnos Guide

The Greek island of Kalymnos lies in the south east Aegean Sea and is located between the islands of Kos and Leros, and is one of the Dodecanese group of islands. The island is quite small with a land area of just over 100 sq. km but despite this it is the fourth largest of all the Dodecanese islands. The island's name has changed over its history. It was first named Kalynda, then Kalymna and then finally, Kalymnos. The island's capital is Pothis, although the most of the island's residents live in Chora, and is the island's second largest town.

Kalymnos is known for its sponge divers and sponge fisheries and it's inland terrain is steep and rocky and is popular with climbers. There are over 1,300 different climbing routes on the island that range in difficulty and terrain. Some routes are on slabs, some on big walls or on overhangs. The landscape used to be a curse for the island's residents but as it attracts visitors to the island it is now a blessing, certainly in terms of tourism.

There is a frequent ferry service to Piraeus, Rhodes and to the other Dodecanese islands. There are also ferry routes operating to the Cyclades islands, Samos and, during the summer season, to Chios, Mytilini, and Thessaloniki.
