Spetses Town

General information

Spetses Town is the capital and only village on the island. It is located on the northeastern side of the island and covers an area of almost 4 km. Dapia, comprising the new harbor and the area around it, constitutes its trade centre. Its architecture captivates travelers from the moment they see it while still on the ferry, thanks to the quaint mansions and elegant flair they emanate.

The town of Spetses concentrates most of the available facilities, including banks, grocery shops, bakeries, supermarkets, a fresh fish market, bike/motorbike rental agencies, restaurants, bars cafes, and a wide variety of shops (clothing, jewelry, gifts, etc.).
The restaurants tend to be traditional and play Greek music, while others at the waterfront serve freshly caught fish dishes. These, along with the bars and clubs, form the diverse night scene of Spetses Town. There is also a range of accommodation options, such as hotels, villas and studios in the area.

Cars are not allowed in Spetses Town, so carriages, motorbikes and bicycles are the usual means of transport. However, for long distances, visitors can also use the local buses. Water taxis and traditional boats are an alternative and more special way of transportation; departing from Dapia, the vessels can take visitors to the Old Harbor and different beaches around the island.

    Luxurious even today
    A very interesting museum only few metres from Dapia, the port of Spetses. This is actually the second home of the Greek heroine and has many private things inside. This place was used as the home of a family, descendant of Bouboulina, who was living there till a couple of decades ago. Then they decided to move their home to the ground floor and turn the upper floors as a museum. Only the first floor works as a museum, the second floor, where the bedrooms were, is still under renovation. The first floor has a large sitting room, a study room and even a hiding place, where the family would hide in case of war or pirate attack. The furniture are pretty impressive and very luxurious for that time, even for today. The ceiling has nice carved designs and it was ordered in Venice, as many other furniture in there. The tour guide is excellent and very informative. It would be nice to have some organized tours in English, but after finishing the Greek tour, the guide will explain you all in English, she was very helpful. You will recognize the place because outside the house there is a canon.
