 Greece

Named after the nymph Zeus fell in love with in Greek mythology, Aegina is the closest island you can visit after landing in Athens. It is also one of the largest ones out there, known for their nature, history and pistachios! Upon arriving, we were greeted with ouzo and those lovely nuts. There’s a little bit of everything on Aegina. From great restaurants, shops and markets in the town to famous historic sites and beaches. The best advice is just to explore all the nooks.

HISTORIC SITES TO SEE

Temple of Aphaia – Agios Nektarios Monastery – Hill of Kolona

CULTURE + FOOD

Pistachios – Ouzo – Maridaki (restaurant) – Pottery
