First Stop (1 hour 45 min stay)Hydra Island

Hydra, one of the most exclusive and romantic islands in the Saronic Gulf. A true pearl unique by its scenery. Hydra is a “car-free” island meaning that no vehicles are allowed, the only means of transportation are the cute island donkeys.

Many poets, musicians, actors and celebrities have been inspired by Hydra in the past, by its impressive well preserved stone architecture, rural paths, and deep crystal clear waters.

The port of Hydra, whose amphitheater shape once served as a safe shelter for Pirates, leaves you with an impression of romance and joy. From the decks, you will be able to admire the very special architecture and dramatic landscapes of Hydra town, whose old traditional stone houses and mansions silently witness to a long and turbulent history.

As soon as you disembark, it’s all there… the small narrow stone-paved streets waiting to be explored… a short walk along the old seaside promenade… crystal clear waters, radiant traditional fine craft shops and museums are few of the island beauties. Allow Hydra to seduce you!

  • Hydra island has more than 300 churches and 5 monasteries.
  • Hydra’s Maritime Academy is the oldest Maritime Academy in the eastern Mediterranean, as it is open since the revolution of 1821.
  • Hydra has inspired many artists such as Picasso and Sagale, as well as it is the home of many artists like P.Tetsis, N.Gkikas, L.Cohen etc.
  • Many movies have been filmed on the island like Sophia Loren’s hit movie “Boy on a Dolphin” and Melina Merkouri’s “Phaedra”.
  • Five Prime Ministers in Greece’s history were Hydra natives: G.Kountouriotis, A.Kriezis, D.Voulgaris, A.Miaoulis and P.Voulgaris.
  • The biggest star in the sky is named Hydra and was noted in the ancient years by Ptolemeus.

Second Stop (50 min stay)Poros Island

Poros was the site of the first naval base in modern Greece, established in 1827 during the Greek War of Independence. Most of the activities of Poros naval base were moved to Salamis naval base in 1881. The site is still used today by the Hellenic Navy as a training center for naval personnel.

  • Poros lemon forest is very famous not only in Greece but world wide also. Orange and lemon production is one of the main financial sources of the island.
  • Poros has an amazing shell museum, founded in 2006, with a permanent exhibition of shells in the Chatzopouleios library.
  • The island’s name means “narrow strait”.

Island with rich history, archaeological and cultural heritage, a prime gem stone among the Greek islands. Poros is separated from the mainland of Peloponnese by a narrow sea channel, and its protected setting makes the main settlement of Poros Town seem like a cheery lakeside resort. Its pastel-hued houses stack up the hillside to a clock tower, the Neoclassical architecture and the lovely port, makes a vibrant first impression.

This remarkable, beautiful green island will charm you with its groves of pine & lemon trees. You can relax walking through quiet narrow streets. Poros is often referred as the “Venice of the Saronic Gulf”. The sole contact between the island of Poros and the mainland is by boat offering a special charm and a feeling of living “on” water. Recommended places to see: Archaeological Museum, Clock Tower, and the Municipal Library

Third Stop (2 hours stay)Aegina Island

Aegina is the biggest island among the Saronic ones and is singled out for the many different and interesting things that it may offer to its visitors. It’s rich history and archeological and architectural landmarks give breath taking impression on visitors with exquisite taste for culture, history and beauty. Along with its wonderful pistachio grove and olive tree landscapes, as well as with the numerous charming fishing villages and quiet golden beaches make it one of the favorite destinations among the Greek Islands.

  • In the 12th century, Aegina was the basic pirates spot especially for their attacks in Athens.
  • The quality of the most famous world wide, local pistachio nut, is a result of the special climate conditions of the island (drought) and in the volcano elements of the soil.
  • Aegina was actually the first capital of Greece and not Nafplio as most people believe. Ioannis Kapodistrias was the first Greek Governor.
  • Aphaea’s Temple was the “pattern” that Iktinos and Kallikratis, the architects of Parthenon, had in mind when designing Parthenon.
  • One of the most known Greek mysteries is about the perfect triangle consisted by the Temple of Aphaea, the Temple of Poseidon in Sounio and Acropolis of Athens.

OptionalExcursions - Activities

1.The “Clasical” Cultural tour (Aegina)

Crossing the island by bus and while the experienced guides provides all the relevant information about the island of Aegina, history and pistachio wise, the passenger anticipates visiting the famous ancient temple of Aphaia alongside with the monastery of St. Nektarios. 

First stop, the archaeological sanctuary of Aphaia, which is one of the most impressive buildings of the post-archaic period. The temple dominates the area and it was founded by the Aegineans to commemorate the Minoan deity Aphaia, daughter of Zeus and Carme. The temple is of a Doric rhythm, one of the best-preserved temples in Greece. It is considered by many the model which the architects of Parthenon had in their minds. Moreover, it is said that together with the temple of Parthenon in Acropolis, Athens and the temple of Poseidon in Cape Sounio, are forming a sacred isosceles triangle, one of the greatest mysteries of the Greek antiquity. 

Licensed guide gives a detailed tour inside the archaeological area and the stop lasts half an hour. 

Second and final stop, the Monastery of St. Nektarios. The Monastery of Saint Nektarios was built around 1904-1907 by St. Nektarios, the Bishop of Pentapolis. St. Nektarios lived in the monastery and died in 1920. In 1961 he was declared a Saint. The church’s architectural style is basilica with a dome, same with the one of Santa Sofia in Istanbul. The monastery is a convent for women and 14 nuns live in it. The memory of the Saint is celebrated on November 9th and once more on the 3rd of September.
