Description
Just across Athens at half and hour from the port of Piraeus discover the charm of Aegina. The city of Aegina is the capital city of the island and it's located on the west side. It is built amphitheatrically towards the sea.

When you enter the harbor, the small, white church of Saint Nikolas welcomes you. Your first impression is the modern type classical buildings, which are located along the sea front of the island and have earth tone colors which make them look even more beautiful at sunset.

Take a ride on the horses and the carriages, walk in the narrow, paved streets and see the traditional houses, the churches with the blue domes and the shops with folk art. Don't miss seeing the fish-market, the traditional restaurants that serve snacks with Ouzo (a Greek drink). Also the fishing boats, that are not only used for fishing but for sailing groceries as well.

Enjoy eating fresh fish and traditional food in the fish restaurants in Aegina. Also, enjoy the patisseries which are in front of the harbor and in the beautiful alleys where you can have a cup of coffee or a drink. And finally don't forget to buy the famous peanuts of Aegina.

In the enchanting atmosphere of the night you can have fun and dance at the clubs in town.

The buildings in Aegina have a neoclassical architecture with folk elements. They were built during the 19th century and they remind us that Aegina were once the capital city of Greece for two years.

Aegina is well-known for its history and for its art and craft events that take place there. The beauty of the island is undisputable and for many decades, many Greek and foreign artists and literary writers preferred to visit this island.

In the narrow streets of the island there are colorful houses and beautiful flowers along with picturesque shops and taverns. The town of Aegina is beautiful, picturesque and it curiously evokes the visitor. A typical thing that every visitor can enjoy are the hackney carriages which unceasingly go up and down the coastal road of the island carrying Greek and foreign tourists.

In the outskirts of the town there are archaic tombs, tombs of the parchment era and the Byzantine church in the name of the Saints Theodoron. One of the sights that we see when we visit Aegina is the Ancient city that was built in the neolithic years (3000 b.c.). And also the modern monuments that were created when the island was the capital of Greece for a short period of time.

Near the port, on the left as we get off the ship is an archaeological place called "Kolonas," known for its one and only pillar (kolona in Greek), that is the only remaining thing from the temple of Apollo Delfiniou, built in a Doric order and dominates the hill.

The hill of Kolonas was the Acropolis and the religious center of the ancient city. In the same area besides the remains and the pillar of the Apollon temple, there are also quite a few buildings and the foundations of two smaller temples, the temple of Artemis and the temple of Dionysus. Today on the hill of Kolona, there is the archeological museum of Aegina, which many findings from the excavations are displayed.
