Usually cruises last at least seven days. However, there is a separate division, the one day cruises in Greece.
As the only last one day, they are a great option for those who would like to travel the seas, but don’t want to spend over a week on a ship. In addition, one day cruises are much simpler to organize.
A person doesn’t need to sign up for them too long in advance, and they are a budget option for those who would like to visit some of the more popular Greek islands.
The one day cruises leaving from Piraeus usually includes visiting the islands of Hydra, Poros and Aegina. This cruise departs from the Piraeus port in Athens, and returns to the same destination. Typically lunch is provided on board, and guests have enough time to spend some on each of the three islands.
Hydra is an interesting island. There are no motor vehicles allowed on it, with the exception of garbage trucks. Visitors can enjoy the large number of churches and monasteries on the island, some of which were built in the 10th Century.
Poros is the second Greek island on this short cruise. It is located very close to the mainland – only about 600 feet away. There are quite a few tourist attractions, due to the island’s rich history. One of the must-see landmarks is the Sanctuary of Poseidon, which was built approximately around 520 BC.
