Evia is the ideal destination for one-day excursions or weekends as an escape from the everyday life of Athens. Only 80 km away from Athens, the city of the sacred fountain of Arethousa is the main gate to the island of Evia. Thanks to its strategic geographic position, the city remains a crossroad of cultures and ideas over the centuries, an apple of discord for many foreign conquerors. 

Today, the cosmopolitan city of Chalkida, is the administrative and commercial centre of the island. Chalkida is particularly famous for the tidal phenomenon that takes place in Evripos, i.e. the swift change of water direction every six hours, created by the Moon’s pull. During each change of direction, the water stops moving for about eight minutes. An ideal place to watch this unique phenomenon is the sliding Negroponte Bridge. Enjoy the charming pedestrian street lined with elegant cafes and restaurants buzzing with life day and night! 

Evia is the largest island of Greece after Crete. It is characterised by its complex topography, with hills and mountains alternating with low fields and plains. It offers a great base for a variety of wines that can be enjoyed on the island.
