Conference Venue

 The entire island of Hydra is a preserved national monument and has retained all its 17th & 18th century charm and quaintness. Hydra town, built in the shape of an amphitheatre on a slope overlooking the Argosaronic gulf, is one of the most romantic destinations in Greece. Traditional stone mansions, narrow cobblestoned streets, secluded squares and above all the banning of cars and the use of around 500 donkeys as means of public transportation, explain the reason why Hydra preserved its distinctive atmosphere through the passage of time. The island experienced exceptional economic growth in the past thanks to its great naval and commercial activity. The island is one of the most serene destinations near Athens, as a ferry from Athens to Hydra, will get you to Hydra in just 2 hours. It's picturesque and very photogenic beauty as well as a range of stunning locations, makes it a thriving venue for conferences.
