from Nafplion

Excursion to Hydra

A beautiful, traditional island

HYDRA

We will pick you up from your hotel or apartment and take you to Ermioni, Porto Heli or Metochi from where you will take a boat or flying dolphin to Hydra.

The beautiful island of Hydra is a vehicle-free island relying on donkeys for transport, there are approximately 500 on the island. Coming into the harbour of Hydra the panoramic view is splendid of the well preserved traditional stone houses. The cobblestoned, narrow streets are full of small shops, cafes and tavernas great for wandering about.

This very pretty town has played its own role in Greece's history, participating in the revolution with its formidable fleet and also the face that it is the birthplace of five Greek Prime Ministers! Visit the lavish stone mansions of the important families of Voulgaris, Kountouriotis, Tombazis, Kriezis, Bountouris etc., which were built by Italian artisans and which show the wealth that Hydra experienced in the past. Today most of these mansions house museums worth visiting.


Time: approx. 8 hoursς

I have visited Mycenae during my European tour with friends. We were astonished by the grandeur and the craftmanship of people who built these walls and tombs. The museum was small, but the antiquities were well presented.
