Detailed description

Day tour from Athens to Aegina with island exploration on 2 wheels and visit of the Aphaia Temple

Go on a beautiful day tour from Athens to the island of Aegina and go on an exploration tour by bike. The island in Saronic Gulf is the perfect destination when you visit the capital of Greece. The Aegina ferry does not depart directly from Athens, but the transfer to the nearby port of Piraeus is included. Together with the trekking bikes you get on board and reach your destination after about 1 hour. Once there, the island bike tour starts and you pedal. After a short drive you will reach the Christos Kapralos Museum, which shows various works of art, including paintings, drawings, ceramics and sculptures made of stone and eucalyptus wood. Afterwards you cycle northwards, partly along the beautiful coast, partly amidst pistachio trees to Souvala. There you take a short break at the small harbour. You leave the coastal road and continue on a medium gradient to visit the most famous sight of Aegina, the Temple of Aphaia. The well-preserved columns are located on a hilltop from where you can see the Acropolis and Cape Sounio on a clear day. The temple sits enthroned over the bay of Agia Marina and is surrounded by fragrant pines.

The day tour from Athens to Aegina takes you by bike to the port of Agia Marina and from there to the Church of St. Nektario, a place of pilgrimage in honour of one of the most important saints of the Greek Orthodox religion. You reach Aegina Town and drive through the picturesque alleys, past pretty buildings and small shops. Here you should definitely taste a bag of the delicious pistachios of Aegina. The bicycle tour leads you to the charming harbour of the village and you stop off at a typical fish tavern to enjoy traditionally prepared seafood. In the late afternoon you will reach again the port of Piraeus on the mainland where the excursion starting in Athens ends. Discover Aegina's sights on an all-day sightseeing bike tour from Athens and enjoy some island feeling. The day trip from Athens to a Greek island shows you the perfect contrast to the lively metropolis - the idyll of the enchanting Aegina.

Terra incognita

Goed on vacation in Greece for the 4th time. Although lying at the gates of the capital, the island of Aegina was unknown to me. With the bike tour I was able to fill my knowledge gap well.

Terra incognita

Machte zum 4. Mal Urlaub in Griechenland. Obwohl vor den Toren der Hauptstadt liegend, war die Insel Ägina für mich unbekannt. Mit der Fahrradtagestour habe ich meine Wissenslücke gut ausfüllen können.
