We depart with our friendly trip attendant-archaeologist, at 07:10a.m from the “Smart-Eco-Pickup” at Piraeus metro station and in 5 minutes distance we reach the gate of our ship. An unforgettable relaxing day-trip to the most amazing islands of Saronic Gulf, Hydra and Poros, has just started!
In one hour we arrive in Poros, the island of the pines where we have around 2 ½ hours to explore and feel its romance and the low rhythms. Let the lemon trees of Galata capture your eye. Watch the old clock of the mainland that arises from the highest part of the hill and is distinguishable from all the corners of the island.
We discover its long history dating from the antiquity combining it with a visit to the small museum of Poros, built in 1960. Learn all the details and the telling-stories from our friendly trip attendant-archaeologist in a relaxing coffee-break.
After Poros and in 35minutes route we reach Hydra, the island of celebrities. We have plenty of time to stroll around the narrow streets of the Lady of the Saronic Gulf with our friendly archeologist. Discover the hidden gems of Hydra participating in the game of the “hidden” treasure! There are numerous celebrities in the world who have experienced Hydra like Sophia Loren, Leonard Cohen, Anthony Perkins Lennon, Eric Klapton, Rolling Stones, Onassis and Callas etc. Though, in Hydra everyone is equal and no social-status stands out!
Learn about the history of the island and the lifestyle of the islanders. The name “Hydra” comes from the various springs that arise in the island. Explore the picturesque alleys and capture the stony houses that are still standing against the modern lifestyle. Donkeys and taxi boats are the unique means of transport in the island and invite you to escape from the modern routine. We also taste the famous “amygdalota” of Hydra. In summer season we enjoy a 30-minute coastline walk with a splendid view against Vlychos beach. Beach-boats or water-taxis are available too. The beach is listed at the 9 most beautiful beaches in Europe according to Forbes. Dive into one of the most beautiful and organized beaches of Hydra with pebbles and crystal-clear waters, suitable for young children as well (in summer season).
After being enchanted by the nature and the majestic landscapes, complete this unique experience by tasting Greek traditional local delicacies in a beach-front tavern. (in summer season)
Last but not least, enjoy a short stop for some shopping of traditional handmade souvenirs!
After this unforgettable experience we are back at Piraeus at around 20:00 pm together with our trip-attendant-archaeologist.
Join us and feel like being with a friend who is excited to show you around like a Greek!
Thank you for submitting your review
An easy and wonderful way to see Greek Islands. If you are located in Athens and you don't have enough time to visit any other Greek Island, Poros and Hydra are the best choices. Too close, and at the same time too beautiful places. At Hydra, we admired outstanding beaches, but also we tasted delicious Greek dishes. Then we got back to Athens full of experience and happy with a very well-spent day!
