Athens - Geraneia - Lake Vouliagmeni Loutraki - Heraion - Corinth Canal
The peaceful lagoon of Vouliagmeni lies 16km northwest of Loutraki and was caused by the subsidence of the ground to α kind of trench.
The lagoon is 2 km long and up to 1 km wide. Its depth is estimated at 40 m. Α channel of 6-m width provides an outlet to the sea.
In ancient times, it was called Eschatiotis (meaning the “last” part of the promontory) or Corgopis (from the mother of Megareus, who was drowned in its waters). No trace has survived of the ancient Megarean colony of Aegeirus, which stood to the north of the lagoon.
Τravel in luxury through Athens where you can see some of Athens most beautiful suburbs of the city. Arrive at Geraneia where the view and the nature of the mountains' secret paths will astonish you.
