If you happen to visit Hydra during summer, do not miss the chance to fit in a trip to Epidavros to follow the famous Athens and Epidavros Festival.
The area of Epidavros with its renowned ancient theater, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, needs no introduction. The picturesque harbor of Old Epidavros, Panagia Polemarha which is surrounded by beautiful olive trees and Ligourio village with the Vasilis Kotsiomitis Natural History Museum are some of the attractions you should not miss. The area is also famous for its taverns serving juicy meat.
For those seeking something different, go on a hiking trip organized by the Naturist Climbing Union (tel. +30 210 9807093).
To get to Epidavros from Hydra, go across to Metohi by water taxi (€30/8 passengers) and from there it is about a 56 km drive by road. The Cinema Club organizes excursions to Epidavros to coincide with the Festival which costs €70/person. (information +30 22980 53105).
