Kythnos offers a special treat of seeing the sunrise while soaking in local hot springs. A favorite among travellers is a stopover in Hydra. Take a local “taxi” (donkey ride) to see the sights of this charming island where there are no cars allowed. It’s not hard to see why Hydra has inspired painters and writers the world over. Gaze at the churches and temples of Aegina, immersing yourself in history. Wander through the local fish market to truly appreciate your meal at the tavern.

ACTIVITY: Dock at the lovely island of Kea, one of the most northern islands of the Cyclades.
