Greece has more than 1400 islands... you can vist Aigina, Poros and Hydra in one day!
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. Poros Island is full 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. 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.

Day 1: Aigina – Poros – Hydra
Breakfast and departure for Palaio Faliro, where we’ll take the cruise-boat for a day cruise to Aegina, Poros and Hydra islands. We’ll stay in each island as per the ship’s itinerary; have lunch on board and get entertained with dances and songs from the orchestra onboard. The cruise will end in the evening. Transfer to the hotel and later on we’ll attend either a theater performance or dance alongside the familiar melodies of bouzouki.
Start your classical tour with 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 pinetree covered 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 temple and then from there we make a small stop for photographs to the Church of Saint Nectarios, where you can admire its beautiful Byzantine architecture.
On our way back to Aegina Port you will have the time to relax and appreciate the exquisite peaceful nature of the island.
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 deers enjoying the landscape as well.
