One day cruise to Saronic Islands
A relaxing carefree one day cruise to three nearby picturesque islands in the Saronic Gulf; Hydra, Aegina and Poros whereby you are afforded some time at each location to sightsee and explore at your own pace. Three islands overflown with history, cosmopolitan aura, religious experience along with sounds, colors and images that you want to keep with you forever.
First stop: Hydra
For much of the past, Hydra has stayed on the margins of history. The population was very small in ancient times, and except for the brief mentions in Herodotus and Pausanias, has left little or no record in the history of those times. As you approach the port of Hydra, the magnificent little town opens its arms to you. The statue of Andreas Miaoulis, a local war hero, welcomes you as he stares out to sea. Spanning from the port up the hills, you can see the impressive clock tower of Hydra and beautiful old mansions as far as the eye can see.
Second stop: Poros
Poros is a leafy island, with insuperable natural beauty and thousands of pine trees, expanding from the steep to the sandy beaches.
Upon arrival, you will have the chance to walk across the town and discover the city hall, the archaeological museum, the public library, the cultural center and the white little houses on the island.
Last stop: Aegina
The biggest island of the Saronic gulf, which took its name by the beautiful nymph that was kidnapped by Zeus. In 1826 Aegina became the first capital of the newly founded Greek state. Aegina is well known across the world for the delicious pistachios, the beautiful, “virgin” beaches and the Temple of Afaia.
