  • Hydra
  • Poros
  • Aegina
Two hours away is Poros, the smallest of the islands but very green and massive coastline.

Poros and Peloponnese Peninsula are devided by a narrow strait that makes it very rare view to see. The time you will stay in Poros is 50 minutes enough to explore its small streets and take photos.

Our next stop is at the port of Hydra, 1:15 minutes later. The island of Hydra is beautiful with stone houses trademark of the greek culture and paved streets. No vehicles are allowed,so walking,taking a bicycle,a donkey (another trademark of the island) or hiring a water taxi is the only way to move on it.All the above makes Hydra a unique island!

The stay time here is an hour and a half and when you return on the ship you will have lunch with tastes of Greek cuisine.
After two hours is Aegina, the largest of the islands.

Classical tour on Aegina (optional)

There is a guided bus tour on the island that takes you to the Temple of Athena Aphaia, one of the best preserved temples in Greece, which is built on a lovely hill and offers spectacular views to the entire island, as well as the Saronic Gulf and even Piraeus. On the way back to Aegina’s port you will make a short stop to the Byzantine Church of St Nectarius.

Panoramic tour on Aegina (optional)

The second option you have is the Panoramic Tour that will take you across the island to get an overview of the natural landscape. You will not get to see the archaeological site with this tour though. The tour will end with a stop by the seaside where you can enjoy a small meal with Greek meze dishes and ouzo!

NOTE. You can buy the tickets for both optional shore trips on board, so that you do not need to worry about it.

When you return to the cruise ship, do not think that the cruise is over. The crew of the ship along with dancers and singers will dress their original Greek costumes and offer you a Greek Traditional Folk Show on board, to animate you during the return to the Port of Piraeus. The main goal is to be entertained!
