Aigina is the second largest island of the Saronic gulf and is only 75′ away from the port of Piraeus. The island has taken its name from God Asopo’s daughter, Aigina, whom Dias had abducted and taken to the island, according to the Greek mythology.
In Aigina you may visit the Archaeological Museum of the island, the temple of Aphaea, the medieval village of Paliochora, the Saint Nectarios monastery, while you must not omit to take the boat to the nearby Moni island, with its sapphire water.
A one day trip to Aigina is ideal for those who want to admire the beauty of the Greek islands while staying in the capital. Lessons will continue in August at our school in Athens and we would definitely recommend our students to visit this beautiful and affordable island if they want to live unforgettable holidays!
