Town Village Aegina: Aegina Town is the capital and main port of the island. It is a lovely little town, with beautiful neoclassical buildings of different bright colours, narrow streets, picturesque cafes, nice squares and a lovely port where tiny coloured fishing boats are mooring. The whole town is an explosion of colours, accentuated by the colourful pistachio nuts sold everywhere.

On the waterfront of the long harbour, cafes, fish taverns and little shops are lining, giving to the whole place a picturesque and friendly atmosphere.North of the port of the town, just behind the little beach, is standing the unique column remaining of an ancient temple dedicated to Apollo.

It used to be the ancient acropolis of the island and stand on the top of a low hill. This site is called Kolona (column) and excavations have revealed various ruins as well as a settlement of five thousand years and layers of city life. A little museum displays the various interesting findings.

On other worth-seeing site of the town is the neoclassical house where Nikos Kazantzakis wrote the famous novel Zorbas the Greek. The house is located in the suburb of Livadi and has a plaque on it. Aegina Town has a fish market, situated in a road parallel of the waterfront road of the port, where excellent taverns are serving fresh fish and Greek food of high quality.
