Tour overview

Enjoy an active day of island scenery, history, breathtaking views and swimming just 1 hour away from Athens !

At only 16.5 nautical miles (about 27 km) from the port of Piraeus, a 1 hour ride on the regular boat, Aegina is a beloved destination for Athenians and international visitors alike, throughout the year, due to its large local population and regular, all year-round, connection to Piraeus. Spectacular ancient temples, mystical medieval settlements, the world-renowned pistachios, centennial olive groves, great hidden beaches, amazing hiking trails, stunning sunsets, and a relaxed island atmosphere –this is Aegina!

On our day tour from Athens, we will enjoy the most popular hike to the temple of Aphaia, followed by a refreshing swim and of course a walk in the tiny and picturesque town.
