About this activity
Our one day excursion starts from the port of Piraeus, where we board the ferry to the island of Aegina. The ship departs at about 8:40 a.m. and after a short and pleasant voyage we arrive at the port of Aegina at 9:40 a.m.

We start the ride from the harbor, turning right along the beach with direction to Marathon and then we follow the steep asphalt road for about 5 km towards Pahia Rahi. We cross Tzikides village, where we admire the beautiful houses and enjoy the excellent views: Angistri, Salamis, Leoussi islets, Moni Islet and the peninsula of Methana in the distance. On getting to Pahia Rahi, we turn left towards Lazarides, where shortly before entering the village we leave the asphalt road and enter a forest road which runs through a pine forest. After approximately 4 km, we find the chapel of St. Anargyri where we stop for pictures and a short rest. Next, we descend for another 3 km and take the ring road of the island with direction to Agia Marina. We cycle through the village and continue towards the archaeological site of Aphaia. The road is steep and passes through a pine forest. We arrive at the entrance of the Temple of Aphaia at about 12:40. We spare about 1 hour and 20 minutes to visit the archaeological site and the museum. In the place, there is also a tourist kiosk with snacks, ice creams, soft drinks etc.

Leaving Aphaia, we continue our journey towards the Monastery of Saint Nektarios. The road is asphalt and downhill up to Mesagro where it passes through a pine forest. At the point of the Monastery, we turn right and cycle up to the hill of Paleochora. This is the old town of Aegina whose main characteristic was the 365 churches, one for every day of the year. Of the 365 churches only 38 have survived, but some are in very good condition and can be visited. In Paleochora we stop for a few minutes and follow a short hiking trail of about 200 meters to visit the churches and take photographs. Next, we depart towards Aegina again.

Arriving in Aegina at about 4:30 p.m. A break follows with leisure time till 5:30 p.m. and then we board the ship which will bring us back to the port of Piraeus, where we arrive at around 6:35 p.m.
