Megara is situated on the strip of land between the Corinthian Gulf and the Saronic Gulf, connecting the Peloponnese in the south to Boeotia in the north and Attica in the northeast. The road along the Saronic Gulf was called Skiron's Road, after a mythological robber who had lived here. Megara had two ports: Pegae in the west and Niseaea in the east.
