You can join a guided bus tour of the island that will take you to the Temple of Aphaia, literally the best preserved ancient temple in Greece built on top of a verdant hill and providing a unique panorama of the Saronic Gulf, Piraeus and the island of Salamina. This temple is one of the 3 ancient temples forming the renowned Sacred Triangle of Greek antiquity. Next comes a visit to the beautiful Byzantine-style Church of Saint Nectarios, where our guide will narrate you the story of the site and the saint’s life. Return to the port where you can wander around, do some shopping and take in the views.
The second tour is Panoramic Bus Tour of Aegina. You will be driven across the island without stopping at the archeological sites, yet you will admire the natural wonders of this verdant island. We will pass by the medieval capital of Paleohora, the Church of Saint Nectarios, the pistachio groves, and many other sites. At the end of the tour we will stop at the seaside where you can unwind for a while and relish a glass of ouzo along with a selection of delicious “Mezedes”, traditional style appetisers.
You can purchase tickets for these tours on board and have the chance to discover the magnificent island of Aegina.
Your third option is to stay around the port area, sit back and relax in one of the coastal cafés after you have been on a horse-carriage ride around the town.
