Day 3 - Athens – One day Cruise
This morning, transfer to pier for your cruise ship to Hydra, Poros & Aegina islands..
Hydra 1½ hour visit
Your point of departure is Flisvos Marina on the Athenian coastline; the spot where our ship sets sail daily. Our first port of call is Hydra. A beautiful small island, yet so great in history that stands out among many others!
Elegance, tradition and majesty. These are the three key-words that point out the beauty and significance of the island, that goes beyond what meets the eye. The cobblestone streets on the island, where donkeys are the primary mode of transportation, are lined with aristocratic mansions, forts, and churches steeped in history.
The architecture of the island with the town of Hydra built in its centre on the imposing rocky slopes has remained intact and unspoilt by modern interventions to our very days thanks to the Hydrants, who religiously keep this unique legacy that has been handed down to them by their ancestors from one generation to the next.
Undeniably looking at the deep blue sea, staying away from noise and daily routine, swimming in the crystal clear waters, sunbathing and enjoying the Greek cuisine and hospitality are the best possible ways of spending one’s holidays, having the time of one’s lives and gathering invaluable memories as souvenirs in one’s hearts and minds.
Poros a 50 minute visit
Poros is the island of peace, romance and relaxation. It is lush with pine trees which reach the rugged shores and the sandy beaches. Approaching Poros by ship, from afar, we can see the historical clocktower on the highest hilltop.
The architecture of Poros is a marvel right before your eyes. The beach houses are mostly neoclassical. The first houses were built in 1463 in the area around the clocktower. The centre of the town features the Town Hall, the Archaeological Museum, the Exhibition Hall and it is the site of a variety of cultural events
Within the narrow streets of Poros among the white houses and bougainvillea’s, there there are various shops, cafés, taverns and many bars with Greek and foreign music to excellently provide for all needs and tastes.
Aegina a 3 hour visit
Aegina, the land of legendary Achilles!
The world famous temple of Aphaia (Athena) imposes at the top of a pine-covered hill in the northeastern part of Aegina. This temple constituted the epitome and prototype of the Parthenon, which was built by Ictinus and Callicrates. When the atmosphere is clear, one can see the Temple of Poseidon at Sounion and the Acropolis of Athens from the site of Aphaia. These three temples form an isosceles triangle (the holy triangle of the ancient times).
On the island there is also the church of Saint Nectarios, a grand Christian Byzantine church, which is one of the largest in the Balkan. It contains a silver urn with the relics of St. Nectarios, the patron saint of the island. Return in the afternoon at Athens and transfer to hotel. Overnight in Athens.
