Egina, Hydra and Poros Day Cruise from Athens hotels
Enjoy a day at sea visiting three gorgeous islands in the Saronic Gulf. You need not worry about transfers or lunch; everything is already taken care of for you on this Saronic Gulf tour. Just relax and take in the wondrous sights around you.
Your Saronic Islands tour begins at Hydra, which is home to gorgeous springs and an assortment of charming shops and restaurants. You have plenty of options to pass the time during your visit to the island. Snap photos of Hydra's crystal clear waters, gaze at the unique architecture, or shop 'til you drop at one of the island's many jewelry shops.
This Sarnic Gulf cruise continues to Aegina, which is no stranger to Greek mythology; Zeus is said to have trained his army on this island. Aegina is home to several notable landmarks, including the Temple of Aphaea. Aphaea was a Greek goddess associated with the agricultural cycle as well as fertility. If Greek Mythology isn't your thing, you can curl your toes on the island's sandy beaches or visit the port's famous fish market.
The final stop on your tour is the smallest of the three islands, Poros. There, you can take a trip to the Sanctuary of Poseidon, where the famous orator Demosthenes sought refuge and ultimately took his own life to avoid capture by the Macedonians. Water sports are another diversion you can partake in during your time at the island.
Back on the boat, a traditional Greek folk show with singers and dancers in original costumes from all of Greece will entertain you up to the final moment as the ship docks in Piraeus. For a cozy escape at sea, look no further than this Saronic Islands cruise.
