Experience the magic of Aegina Island, located in the Argosaronic Gulf just a stone's throw from Athens.

The tour ends with a one-hour walking tour of the cosmopolitan alleys of Aegina town. Explore the impressive neoclassical mansions built for the Governor and other public buildings from modern Greece. Before we leave, don't miss the chance to taste the famous Aegina pistachios, a local product used in various traditional sweets and other delicious treats.
