Bring together more than 2500 of dramatic history, arguably one of the most important battles ever fought on European grounds, and some of the most stunning views Greece has to offer and the result is Salamina, without a doubt. The largest island in the Saronic Gulf offers many reasons to visit it. The name of Salamina was actually the name of the nymph salamis, one of the five daughters of the river Asopos.
The name translates as sal and amis which means amidst the salt, so therefore an island that sprouts right between the sea. Salamis is quite a popular destination for the Athenians and there are many reasons for that. The quality of fresh fish on the island is exquisite and you will find many beautiful little taverns and traditional restaurants to indulge.
Salamis island is most commonly known for one of the most intense and epic battles ever fought on the european grounds. In fact, many historians claim that it was here that the western civilisation as we know it was forged due to the victory of the Greeks against the Persians. The story is so well known and vivid that you can almost see it unfolding in front of your eyes, as you admire the scenic beauty that the island has to offer.
