Tuesday, 01 November 2016
A small, pine-tree covered island of the Saronic Gulf with many beaches. The islands’ only town is densely-built with traditional, neoclassical-style homes. The narrow alleys between the houses form a labyrinth, hiding surprises at every turn.

Hundreds of incredibly luxurious yachts berth in the port of the island.
