We do not need to tell you much about Nafplio, in order to convince you to visit it since its beauty and many attractions are well known - the Archaeological Museum, the old Turkish mosque and the square of the Three Admirals with the impressive building of the Town Hall, the small island of Agios Theodoros, also known as "Bourdzi", the Akronafplia and Palamidi strongholds with 857 steps (or according to the legend, 999), fancy cafes and restaurants in the city centre and individualistic night bars.

If you have a car you can combine your visit to Nafplio with the traditional mountain villages of Arcadia. To the cobblestone villages and houses you can add walk to the Loutsios Gorge, with its beautiful scenery and the impressive pine forest of Menalo.

Tzia or Kea (, the “balcony” of Attica, with its most important advantage of being just a short distance from Athens (located less than an hour from the port of Lavrio), offers excellent opportunities for all visitors.

Korisia, the natural harbour of the island is a picturesque coastal village and tourist centre with numerous shopping outlets, restaurants, cafes, supermarkets, hotels, rooms for rent, and of course wild nightlife.

And the major city of the island Youlida has a traditional look, small cobbled streets and offers magical views.

A kilometre north is Yaliskari, a beach with fine golden sand and beautiful clear waters and a little further away you can find Vourkari, a traditional fishing village and also perhaps the most touristic part of the island, because it is a popular destination for yachtsmen.

If you enjoy hiking, select one of the paths of the island (, with total length of 90 km, most of which are covered with stones, in order to feel the mystical charm of Kea.



Εvia is the second largest island in Greece, and also offers plenty of opportunities to celebrate May 1st. As in the north also in the central and southern parts of the island you will find interesting towns, cities, natural beauties and beaches that will make you forget the chaos in the big city: Chalkida with its spectacular bridge and seashore main street filled with taverns, Κymi ( on the east coast of the island, with its beautiful beaches, the picturesque Limni (, almost in the middle of the northern Gulf of Evia, which combines the unique blue of the bay with the rich vegetation around Rovies, Αmarinthos, Edipsos and others.
