Full description
Discover the first capital of Greece on this sailing trip. After a couple of hours of sailing on a comfortable catamaran, you will reach the harbor of Aegina. 

See important sights such as the Temple of Aphaia, the Byzantine relics of Paleochora, the remains of the Temple of Hellenic Zeus, the prehistoric settlement of Kolonas, the Tower of Markellos, the Cathedral, the Capralos Museum, the Folklore Museum, and the Archaeological Museum. Sail past famous white-sand beaches such as Marathon, Agia Marina, Perdika, and Souvala, and stop for a snorkel or dip in the island's crystal-clear waters. You will also have time to visit the imposing Monastery of Saint Nektarios as well as many churches that survived after the Ottoman domination.

Aegina pistachios are PDO protected and considered superior to a number of foreign varieties due to the island's particular climatic conditions and volcanic characteristics. Make the most of your unique opportunity to sample these world-famous delicacies. Before returning to Athens, enjoy some free time to wander through the island's picturesque streets, have lunch at one of the tavernas offering fresh fish, or visit the numerous monuments on his historic island.
