Ports of call at the following three islands:
Aegina – The town of Aegina stands out for its well-preserved buildings. From 1827-1829 Aegina town was the temporary capital of the newly founded Greek state. It was during that period when Governor Ioannis Kapodistrias had impressive neoclassical mansions built to house his headquarters that today are important tourist attractions. The island has a great number of sights and natural beauties, of which one is the famous Aphea Temple. In fact, it forms an equilateral triangle with the Parthenon and the Temple of Poseidon at Sounio, the so-called “holy triangle” of the antiquity. And don’t miss the finest pistachios in the world! The ideal climate of the island and the unique soil composition lend to the exceptional flavor and aroma of the Aegina pistachio.
Poros – The town of Poros is built in the shape of an amphitheatre over two hills with lush pine trees, crystal clear beaches, and a lively waterfront with shops, cafes and restaurants. It is a picturesque town with grand traditional mansions and picturesque cobbled streets. Follow a route through the narrow streets of the town that will lead you up to a hill, where the trademark of the island stands, the historic Clock Tower, where you can relax and enjoy a panoramic view of the whole town. Poros is famous for its Lemon Forest!
Hydra – Built in the shape of an amphitheatre on a slope overlooking the Argosaronic Gulf, it is one of the most popular destinations in Greece. Discover the island’s unique architecture and traditional stone mansions, narrow cobblestoned streets and secluded squares. The most striking feature of this island is that cars are banned! The donkey is the traditional means of transport. There are 300 churches and 6 monasteries spread around the island. Hydra experienced exceptional economic growth in the past thanks to its great naval and commercial activity. The Hydriots contributed significantly to the 1821 War of Independence as their powerful fleet participated in crucial sea battles. The fact that such a tiny island is the birthplace of five Greek Prime Ministers is rather impressive!
