"The town of Spetses, as lovely as the island" Spetses by AndyRG

Spetses Travel Guide: 18 reviews and 25 photos

The capital

Spetses town is the capital and the main living place on the island of Spetses (as usually happens, the island and its capital have the same name). About 3.500 lucky inhabitants live there...
You can also see my Spetses Island page for more... info (what else?).

People and art

The historical and artistic town of Spetses has kept this character thanks to its friendly inhabitants too...
Spetsiot pebble mosaics (which decorate yards and squares), wall-paintings, the traditional naval architecture are all admirable!


Transportation (not only in the town, but all over the island) is mainly carried out with motorbikes, bicycles (the best solution!), sea and land taxis, even 2 buses at the summer period. Luckily, it is forbidden to go there with your own car...
About the nightlife, Spetses is a quiet town, but hot spots -even in Baltiza, the old port- are not missing...

    Thank you for a nostalgic walk around those old pebbled pathways. Spetses is full of good memories. And the scent of jasmine.
