First explore the old town. But before you set off, don’t forget to buy a bag of those pistachios. If you’re feeling romantic or lazy, you can take a tour in a horse-drawn carriage and be transported instantly into the 19th century. Close to Athens, in the heart of the Saronic Gulf, you’ll enjoy picture-perfect imagery. You’ll pass the dazzling white chapel of Agios Nikolas, brightly painted fishing caiques, some of which double as floating greengrocers, and the fish market with almost as many tavernas as stalls. Make sure you come back here to sample the seafood with a glass of ouzo.
