What to Expect – Itinerary:
On this One Day Cruise from Athens to Aegina, Poros & Hydra, our Officers and Hostesses will be welcoming you and invite you to Main Lounge or to one of the spacious open decks, from where you can enjoy the fascinating view as the ship leaves the port.
*If Round Trip Pickup Transfer is selected (Extra Charge), our personnel will meet you at the lobby of your hotel in Athens to transfer you to the port.
After departure, our Multi-lingual Guides will meet you in one of the Lounges, to give you all the necessary information concerning the cruise program and tips about the islands. This will be the chance to get answers to any questions you might have.
Arriving at the beautiful Hydra island, the first stop on the One Day Cruise from Athens, you will see the scenario from which many artists got inspired, like Picasso and Sagale. Many movies were filmed here, like Sophia Loren’s movie “Boy on a Dolphin” and Melina Merkouri’s “Phaedra”.
When disembarking, you can walk around the small narrow stoned streets or explore the town in the traditional “vehicle” – the saddled donkey! Captivating seaside walks, crystal clear water, traditional fine-craft shops… The beauty of Hydra will catch you!
Leaving from Hydra, on the way to Poros Island, the Buffet will serve. Taste the gastronomic creations of our Chef!
The second stop on this 1 Day Cruise from Athens is Poros Island, separated from the Peloponnese by a narrow strait. It offers a very enchanting view, with yachts, fishing boats, and the Clock Tower. You’ll have free time in Poros to stroll around the small picturesque streets of the island.
This 1 Day Cruise from Athens also visits the Aegina Island, famous for being the former capital of Greece after the Independence and the pistachio production. This is the largest of the three islands of the One Day Cruise from Athens. There are many interesting sites to discover, and we propose 2 optional tours….
1. Guided Bus Tour around Aegina island: visit the Temple of Aphea, the best-preserved temple in Greece and one of the 3 temples forming the famous “Sacred Triangle” of Greek antiquity. On top of a wooded hill, it offers the most magnificent view over the island and the Saronic Gulf.
Also, our guide will take you on a short visit to Saint Nektarios Church, where you can admire its beautiful Byzantine architecture.
2. Panoramic Bus Tour: drive across the island (without visiting the archaeological site) admiring the nature, the medieval capital of Paleohora, Saint Nektarios Church, the pistachio groves… The tour ends with a stop by the seaside where you can relax and enjoy a glass of Ouzo along with a choice of irresistible Greek “Mezedes” (appetizers)!
The tickets for the above optional recommended excursions can be purchased on board.
Another choice is to stay in Aegina Town and enjoy a walk, a horse-carriage ride around the town, or just relax in one of the harbor’s coffee shops.
And if you think that the day ends here… NOT AT ALL!
A “Traditional Greek Folk Show” with singers and dancers in traditional costumes will entertain until the end.
*If Round Trip Pickup Transfer is selected (Extra Charge), our personnel will wait for you just outside the Cruise ship to transfer you back to your hotel in Athens.
