Aegina day tours by Best Athens Tours
If you do not have time to visit one of the famous Greek islands let us tempt you with a day trip to Aegina, a small island of a great beauty only a hour away from Athens. Aegina is an ideal destination which gives you a taste of the Greek islands and the Greek countryside without having to go far from the city.
Our tour starts with a drive to the port and after an hour on the ship we will reach our destination. Our first visit will be the monastery of Saint Nektarios who established it on the remains of a byzantine one between 1904 and 1907. Saint Nektarios spent there the last twelve years of his life, helping the whole community by offering food to those in needs. His remains along with his personal belongings are still there and open for the people to visit. Our next stop will be the ancient temple of Afea Athena. Since the island is very close to Athens, it has developed an important civilization and the impressive temple is the proof for that. It stands there since the fifth century b.C and it is in very good condition as most of its pillars are still in place. When the atmosphere is clean, Athens and Sounion are visible, the rest of the days the amazing view of the sea amazes!
After your meal you will be able to enjoy all the other beauties that Aegina has to offer such as the beautiful beaches and the local delicacies made with the local pistachio. Then we will go back to Athens.
