Join us for three fabulous days on this Aegina Adventure, a special itinerary created for friends to enjoy together. Come with us and explore this special island home of an ancient civilization that once ruled the Aegean Sea. Only 20 miles from Athens, this island is close enough to be seen from Athens, but still manages to preserve a lifestyle worlds away.
Together we will explore sights spanning 3000 years of history, including the spectacular ancient Temple of Aphaia, medieval chapels at Paleochora, the 19th century Orphanage of Kapodistrias, and the modern Monastery of Agios Nectarios. Along the way we will also discover the secrets of Aegean sponges and pistachio nuts, two products for which the island is famous.
