For a short trip, only a couple of hours from Athens by boat, Spetses sounds like a brilliant destination to relax and take a fresh breath away from the busy centre. Those ten years that I live in Athens, in never really bothered to see not even one of the Saronic islands but after all I have heard for this beautiful island, last year I was very curious to see it myself. I was off work for more than two weeks so I thought I should not spoil not a single day.

We arrived in Spetses a couple of hours later ready to start our walks in the picturesque town. We actually took the horse carriage to get us to the hotel. On our way, I was surprised by the elegant atmosphere of such a small place, the Neoclassical houses and the traditional atmosphere. Small islands like Spetses is like an embrace, it makes you feel home. There are not many things to do but one time is never enough when visiting the beautiful beaches and the walks in the town.

The most interesting spot in Spetses is the port Dapia lined up with cannons that were used in the Greek revolution. We sat in one of the great cafeterias there and enjoyed the view to the sea. We also had some lovely meals in the central square taverns and refreshing swims. Spetses is not for long vacations but I will surely remember it as one of my best trips in Greece.
