The Greek Island where the *Pistachio Nut is king.

Aegina Island

Only an hour’s ferry (or 45’ hydrofoil) ride from the port of Piraeus (the main port of Athens), Aegina is the perfect One Day Island Hop Adventure. Your day trip will be a combination of a morning coffee at a traditional ‘cafeneion’, a visit to a glorious ancient temple, lunch in a picturesque fishing village, a visit to a pistachio workshop, and ouzo & meze before you depart.

Your guide will be a local and the tour will be private (up to 4 people) affair.

* The Aegina Pistachio nut has been declared a ‘Protected Designation of Origin’ product and Aegina Island is Europe’s leading pistachio producer.
