Abstract

Spetses is the only Greek settlement which has a complete ban of traffic. Excessive use of motorcycles puts in danger not only the development of tourism on the island but also the island itself. This study aims at preserving the shape of the settlement, its natural and urban environment, improving the quality of life and promoting the development of tourism.

Keywords
