About Aegina and what makes it a great tour destination
Aegina is one of the most popular Greek islands located in the Saronic Gulf. Only 27 kilometres away from the iconic Athens, Aegina stands today as one of Greece’s most popular touristic destination and is the home to a number of very exciting tour opportunities. The island is believed to have been named after Aegina, the mother of the hero Aeacus, who was born on the island and became its king. During ancient times Aegina stood as a rival of Athens, the great sea power of it’s time.
There are ancient sites to see, pretty beaches to relax at, historic sights to snap shots of and local specialties to try. For a little island, there are lots of things to do.
One of the things to do on Aegina is seek out the salmon pink Tower of Markellos in Aegina Town. It was built in the 17th century as a Venetian fortification and later used as a headquarters during the Greek Revolution of 1821.
Another one of the top things to do on Aegina is visit the archaeological site of Kolona. During ancient times, a fantastic Doric temple dedicated to the god Apollo was built here. A monolithic column that formed part of the temple remains and it was an important reference for Venetian sailors who named the area Colonna.
