Experience Hydra and neighboring Islands in One Day

    Many visitors to Greece planning to see the mainland attractions such as Olympia, the Acropolis, and Delphi, find they run out of time to visit the Greek islands. With a “Greek Islands in One Day’  family-friendly cruise from Athens to see, however, it is now possible to get a taste of the idyllic Greek island life during a day trip.

    The family-friendly cruise from Athens visits three islands in the Saronic Gulf. The three islands included on the cruise, are Hydra, Aegina, and other neighbooring islands.

    Hydra is perhaps the island the kids will love the most. As soon as the boat arrives, you will be able to see the donkeys waiting by the docks. You can choose to have a donkey ride around the narrow streets of the town, feed them, or simply have your picture taken with them. They make it feel as though time has stood still on the island, which to a certain extent it has. The entire island only has three vehicles on it!

    Aegina is the third island on the day cruise from Athens. Here, you will take a bus up to the ancient Temple of Aphaia, one of the best preserved temples in Greece. Your guide will be able to show you on a map how a triangle is formed by this and two other temples on the mainland. If there is time, the tour on Aegina will also stop at the Monastery of St. Nektarios, one of the biggest in Greece. The pistachio sellers outside will always let the kids try some nuts for free! Afterwards, everyone will board the boat once more, and the Captain will set sail for Athens.

    Depending on the time of year, you might witness a glorious sunset on your way back, making a perfect end to the day.

    Do not miss the great opportunity to experience the Greek Island in One Day!
