Ofcourse...Here are some pics from the surrounding areas nearby

The area is pretty strange. Especially the forests near the hot gates that look like rainforests.

Gharanai, note also that the area has suffered historically a lot by floods and tides. The sea level was much higher that it is in the present day so you can't see any narrow valleys anymore. However, you would freak out by the change of the water lever everyday.

Since you love these environments be aware for a forthcomming post i prepare called "Environments of the Ancient Greeks" where I will gather natural environments from the areas you read in history books.
