Istanbul to Athens - Azamara Journey


sunny 95 °F

Our final stop on this adventure is the quaint island of Hydra. There is one main town, known simply as "Hydra port" (pop. 1,900 in 2011). It consists of a crescent-shaped harbour, around which is centered a strand of restaurants, shops, markets, and galleries that cater to tourists and locals (Hydriots). Steep stone streets lead up and outwards from the harbor area. Most of the local residences, as well as the hostelries on the island are located on these streets. We toured a very nice maritime museum, walked through the village and had a nice seaside lunch before heading back to the ship to get ready for departure in the morning! It's another wonderful vacation and day trip for the Greeks.
