One-day cruise in the Saronic Gulf
On Saturday, 20 June 2009, our students, joined by friends and relatives, went on a one-day cruise to the islands of Hydra, Poros, and Aegina and had the time of their lives.
The cruise included a variety of activities. On Hydra, some of the students took their first dive into the sea, while others preferred to take pictures of the sites and enjoy a walk around the island’s picturesque alleys. On Poros, everyone enjoyed a filling meal on board followed by ice-cream at the port. The cruise was completed with a visit to Aegina, where some of the participants visited the Temple of Afaia and the Monastery of Saint Nectarios, while others preferred a walk in the island’s narrow streets, where they where they stocked up on the famous pistachios that are produced locally.
Later, back on board, our students had the chance to watch and take part in Greek folk dances, guided by experienced dancers. Back in Piraeus, full of memories, the group promised to meet again on the next cruise and have an equally great time.
