Spetses

Spetses (ΣΠΕΤΣΕΣ in Greek), older form Spetsai is an island in Greece. Until 1948, it was part of the old prefecture of Argolidocorinthia that is now split into Argolis and Corinthia. In ancient times, it was known as Pityoussa and later is was known as Petses. The town is the only settlement on the island and was one of the two only provinces in Greece that has fewer than five settlements and two municipalities. It is presently an independent municipality. Ferries arrive regularly from Piraeus and Plaka near Leonidi and Napflion on the Peloponnese. No motor vehicles are allowed on this island, so the public transportation is provided by taxi-donkeys.(correction: There are plenty of motorcycles on Spetses) The inhabited area is so compact that most people walk everywhere. The port is also known as Dapia. Trails encircle the island and totals about 25 to 30 km.
