HydraGreek island located in the Gulf of Salonika in the Aegean, Hydra has fewer than 2,000 residents, and has the appearance of a mountain range that plunges into my sea, culminating at 593 meters, the Mount Eros, and a rocky and fairly steep. The only town on the island is also called Hydra, and is sheltered in a bay. Today become a tourist destination, it nevertheless welcomes a car or scooter, and its port, protected by bastions, charm travelers, who immediately landed, can sit down at one of the many terrace the cafes that line. We can then walk on foot or by donkey in the streets of the city that cascade over the harbor, flowering bougainvillea. The lack of engine creates an incomparable calm, and it's hard to believe that in the 18th century, the island had 27,000 souls, shipyards and a large fleet which traded with America: are found as a trace nice houses that belonged to the previous owners. The city also hosts an annex of the School of Fine Arts in Athens, as the beauty of the place is an inspiration for artists (Chagall, Leonard Cohen, Panayotis Tetsis, among others). Some activities: walking on the coastal path through the scrub, horseback riding, exploring the villages of the island and its secluded coves. Hydra is accessed by taking a boat from Piraeus (between 1 and 3 hours away by boat type). It is advisable to book accommodation in advance, especially in summer.
