Day 1: AEGINA
Thanks to its close proximity to Athens, the island of Aegina is one of the most popular destinations for locals and tourists alike. The island’s port city retains a turn-of-the-century atmosphere while featuring dining and entertainment options for everyone.
Day 2: MONI – AGISTRI
The lush and uninhabited island of Moni is a sanctuary for wild animals including deer, goats, even peacocks and squirrels. You and your friends may want to explore a number of trails that crisscross the tiny island. Water sports and quality local dining are available at the island of Agistri, while the adventurous can even go horse riding and cycling.
Day 3: POROS
Poros has one of the most picturesque island capitals of Greece. It’s a summer home for many Athenians and offers visitors the best combination of nature, culture and traditional architecture. Poros features both laid-back and busy beach life, while later in the day you’ll want to explore the city and its tasteful nightlife.
Day 4: HYDRA
Hydra is a car-free island with an inviting crescent shaped port where you’ll find museums, crafts stores as well as quiet cafes and bars. Hydra’s main city also hosts a number of festivals and concerts throughout the summer, making nightlife entertainment just part of the fun.
Day 5: DOKOS
All along the northern side of the uninhabited island of Dokos are a number of tiny beaches that you’ll call your very own. For a breathtaking view, walk up to the northeastern peak that once was the home of a 7th century fortress – now, only the wall remains.
Day 6: SPETSES
At the cosmopolitan island of Spetses, horse-drawn carriages and motorcycles zip around the island’s only community. The Venetian-era port’s sea-side promenade features the island’s best bars and clubs, especially towards the Old Port area that attracts fashionable Greeks as well as the international jet set.
Day 7: ERMIONI
The small seaside community of Ermioni could pass for another Greek island, even though it’s situated in mainland Greece. This traditional Greek holiday destination is surrounded by farmland, so don’t miss out on the wide variety of local products found in Ermioni’s stores and taverns.
