Aegion (Aigio) is the second town in the prefecture of Achaia, with a population of 30,000 inhabitants.
It was one of the 12 cities that formed the Achaean League. In the Middle Ages, it was called by the slavic name Vostitsa or Vostitza.
The city is close to the sea. There is a ferry service to Agios Nicholaos, in Sterea Ellada. Panagia Trypiti is a church close to the beach. Visit also the square Psila Alonia.
