"So close to Athens, so far away..." Aegina Island by AndyRG

Aegina Island Travel Guide: 142 reviews and 425 photos

Aigina is a nice small island just one hour by ferry from Piraeus (Pireas), the port in the prefecture of Athens. As an island, there are wonderful beaches, traditional villages, enough peaceful places of interest. The capital is a historical (capital of Greece in 1828-1829) and picturesque town.

    I didn't have to travel all the way to Naxos to get that relaxing feeling.
