Getting to Know the Region of Central Greece: Evia

In the heart of Greece, where breathtaking mountains meet gorgeous beaches and wild rivers flow into the peaceful sea, where nature meets civilization and ancient history finds the modern world… there lies the Region of Central Greece, a land of rich contradictions, intense excitements and unexpected experiences.

It is a place where someone can wander among legends, stroll into great history and eternity through its archaeological sites, achieve serenity and reflect upon the richness and depths of faith in its well-hidden religious treasures, come across its pure nature and experience its warm hospitality.

The Region of Central Greece is divided into five regional units: Viotia, Evia, Evrytania, Fthiotida and Fokida,

This week we will be exploring Evia, our last stop in Central Greece.

    Hi, this information is from 2017.
    The Evia and Skyros Hotel Association has not eMail contact, just a phone number.
    Since 2017 no further updates – no further information about the bus line from Athens Airport to Chalkida or any ship routes to Limni and Aedipsos. We have a house to rent in Limni and spoke to people who are engaged but without a better public transportation guests will not come.
    Thank You!
