Hydra is one of the most picturesque islands in Greece and one of the most impressive islands in the Argo Saronic Gulf
Reaching the port, Hydra island looks glamorous like an art-paint, with grey, white and blue colors above the blue of the sea, an exemplar of architectonics and aesthetics. The town of Hydra island, which is the center of the whole island, is built amphitheatrically around the port, combining nature and architecture.
Character and charm abound, and the island’s impressive history is evident everywhere. Many of the mansions of the leaders of the Greek Revolution, which was launched from Hydra, are today preserved and restored as hotels and museums. The entire island is designated as a National Greek Monument and the preservation order stipulates an island wide ban on cars, mopeds and bikes. Transport in the island depends on horses, mules and donkeys.
Hydra is famous for the calm life is offers to the visitors in the day, but also for the intense, cosmopolitan night life. So, the island each year receives a large number of Greek and foreign visitors.
