Spetses
Located just a two-hour ferry ride off the coast of Athens, this small island serves as a great escape from the bustling city. But more than its close proximity to the capital, Spetses is important for its role in the 1821 War of Independence, where the revolution flag was first raised. The island is dotted with well-preserved churches, memorial sites, and historic museums housed inside mansions. Don’t miss taking in views at the old harbor, Baltiza, which served as a shipbuilding center in the 18th century and is still actively used today.
