A very verdant island full of beauties and wonderful landscapes, still unspoiled and very authentic. It is separated from the mainland (Peloponnese) by a 200-metre wide sea channel. The capital is a picturesque town with beautiful neoclassical and Venetian buildings, built amphitheatrically on the slopes of a hill. Picturesque villages and small churches and chapels scattered around are completing the wonderful image.

Cruising time from Athens: 2 h.
