Re: 2004 olympics
Hello! I expect you've given up waiting for an answer on this one. I just dropped by to ask a question in the same foum. I did come across some vague information just now - no schedule has yet been agreed, there may be some charter boats at 0030, 1.30 and 2.30, and a new company has applied for a licence but it hasn't been agreed yet.
If I were you, I wouldn't worry about it. As there's money to be made, the boats will be there.
Have a good trip!
btw where are you staying and was it recommended to you?

Travel Tips for Aegina Island
Museum of sculptor Christos Kapralos
Christos Kapralos (1909 - 1993) is one of my favourite greek sculptors, as i know all his history, because he was born in Panetolio(West Greece), my mothers birthplace.
He studied painting at the Athens School of FINE ARTS ( 1929-1934) and sculpture at the Academies GRAND CHAUMIERE and COLAROSSI , PARIS ( 1934-1940)
In the island of Aegina Capralos since 1963 had his own summer studio , sharing his time between Athens and Aegina.
The Museum is situated 3 km distance from the port of Aegina. In the studios you can see painting, sculptures on the porous stone of Aegina, small sculptures on bronze, teracottas and ceramic.
Perdika is situated 3 km from Aegina town. There is a fine beach on the way to Perdika. The charming fishing harbour lined by fish tavernas, affords a good view of Moni island.
We had a delisious lunch in Perdika village and it was the first time I've tried the octopus (grilled)!!!
Paleohora is located on a hill far away from the coast. It was the capital of the island under the Venetians and the Turks when the coast was vulnerlable to piracy.
It was abandoned by its inhabitants early in the 19 C.
The houses were all destroyed but a great number of churches and chapels have been restored
Faraway so Close
"1,5 hours from home"
This island is so close to Athens and I have visited only twice in my life!
There are plenty of ferries and flying dolhins to take you there from Pireaus and the prices are cheap. You can find almost one boat per hour, especially the summer time.
