Full description
Take a full-day Greek Island cruise from Athens and sail to the Aegean islands of Hydra and Poros in the Gulf of Aegina.

Departing from Marina Flisvos in Athens, sail across to Hydra, the beloved muse of painters, craftsmen, and photographers. The combination of its unique architecture, crystal clear waters, splendid crafts shops, and habit of getting about by donkey, make it one of the last examples of a living Mediterranean history.

After some free time to explore on your own, set sail for Aegina. Lunch will be served on board as you pass through the narrow strait separating the Peloponnese coast from Poros.

Known for its rich history, pistachio groves, lively fish market, and floating fruit and vegetable market, as well as picturesque seaside villages, Aegina was once a rival to Athens, and you can visit the majestic 5th-century BC Temple of the Goddess Aphaea overlooking the Saronic Gulf, regarded as the best preserved ancient temple of Greece.

Continue to Poros, the smallest of the 3 islands. Poros Town nestles quietly in the embrace of deep green pine forests and mildly scented lemon groves. A climb to the town’s Bell Tower affords unforgettable views.

But the day doesn’t end there! A traditional Greek folk show, featuring singers and dancers in original costumes form all over Greece will entertain you on the return journey to Marina Flisvos.

Good organization and a beautiful island of Hydra

From the pick-up to the boat trip to the return trip to the hotel, everything went well and was well organized. The island of Hydra is particularly worth seeing. For campaigns on Hydra and on Aegina had to be paid extra. The food on board was very good. The only disadvantage is that the excursion is advertised with the selection of a German speaking guide. The languages, Greek, French, English and Spanish were spoken on board.

very expensive cruise compared to the interest. it is true that it allows you to see islands and change scenery. hydta is a pretty island, peros has no interest and aegina has interest only if you take a sightseeing tour on site in addition to 23 or 28 €. in the end 3:45 of visit and the rest of the time of navigation ... I do not recommend it in view of the value for money
