AEGINA

During our stay in Aegina we can share with you our 3 proposals for excursions:

CLASSICAL TOUR

The first possibility is a Guided Bus Tour of the island, starting with a visit to the Temple of Afaia which is the best preserved temple in Greece and one of the 3 temples forming the famous “Sacred Triangle” of Greek antiquity. Built on top of a wooded hill, it offers the most magnificent view over the island, the Saronic Gulf, Piraeus and Salamina Island. Our guide will tell you the fascinating story of the intriguing history of this beautiful site and then from there we make a small stop for photographs to the Church of Saint Nectarios, where you can admire of its beautiful Byzantine architecture. The drive back to Aegina Port will give you time to relax and appreciate the exquisite peaceful nature of the island.

PANORAMIC TOUR

The second possibility is a Panoramic Bus Tour, giving you the opportunity to drive across the entire island (without visiting the archaeological site) admiring the beauty of its nature, the island’s medieval capital of Paleohora, the Church of Saint Nectarios. Final stop is at a local taverna at the port to enjoy some meze and tsipouro.

SWIMMING

Enjoy a soft drink while we transfer you by our company’s speedboat to the coast of Moni, 7 minutes away from the port, to a private organized beach with umbrellas which is ideal not only for swimming but also for enjoying the natural beauty and landscape filled with pine trees. You can swim in the crystal clear blue waters and enjoy the sandy beach next to peacocks and if you are lucky you can see the dears enjoying the landscape as well.

AEGINA

  • 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.

And if you think that the day ends here… you are mistaken!

The highlight of your cruise still waits!
