Description

Hydra is one of the most romantic destinations in Greece, built on a slope overlooking the Argosaronic gulf. Traditional stone mansions, narrow cobblestoned streets, secluded squares, and above all the banning of cars, explain the reason why Hydra preserved its distinctive atmosphere through the passage of time. 

You can walk along the waterfront, the heart of the town, you encounter monuments, churches, canons, museums, old mansions, statues of famous heroes, shops, and cafes, while picturesque winding streets lead you to neighborhoods located at the upper part of the town.

Please note: This tour includes hotel pick up and drop off service. Simply select your hotel from the pick up list and our driver will be on his way.

Once at Hydra...

Who cares if there are barely any beaches? You can always find a slab of sunbaked rock from which to leap rock from which to dive into the clearest water in the world
Car-free and protected by a preservation order, Hydra has always been the artists' muse of the Greek Islands.

Traditional stone mansions, narrow cobblestoned streets, secluded squares, and above all the banning of cars explain the reason why Hydra preserved its distinctive atmosphere through the passage of time. 

You can walk along the waterfront, the heart of the town, where you will encounter several monuments, churches, canons, museums, traditional mansions, statues of famous heroes, shops, and cafes, while picturesque winding streets lead you to neighborhoods located at the upper part of the town. 

It is rather impressive the fact that such a tiny island is the birthplace of five Greek Prime Ministers!

Back to Athens.

At the afternoon (about 15.15) you will take the ferry back to Piraeus port where our driver will meet you and transfer you to your hotel in Athens. (note that, you can send us a special request to return later than 15.15 without extra cost)
