HOW TO REACH

Just 80 km away from Athens, the city of the sacred spring of Arethousa is the road gate to the whole Evia. Its strategic geographical position has made it a crossroads of ideas and cultures from ancient times, a strong foundation for the conquerors of all times. Today, the cosmopolitan Chalkis, administrative and commercial center of the island, built on both sides of the Strait of Euripos is an endearing place for short escapes from bustling Athens. The High Cable Bridge, an impressive modern construction, has greatly facilitated and accelerated access to the city of Chalkis.
