Evia (Euboea)

Adriana's family home is on the island of Evia, between the capital city of Chalkida and the ancient port city of Eretria. Evia is about an hour from the Athens airport by car and accessible either by a ferry in Eretria or a bridge in Chalkida. There are taxi services, but the area around our home is rural and not pedestrian-friendly so we suggest that you rent a car at the airport so that you can get around freely. Most cars are manual, so time to practice shifting gears! If you're planning to stay on our island for a few days before or after the wedding (and we hope you do), we've put together some places to stay and things that you might enjoy doing while you're there. Please try to book your hotel as soon as possible, as we're anticipating a heavy tourist season this summer.

Travel Note

Eretria

Eretria is an ancient port city and is still the entry point for accessing Evia by ferry from the mainland. This is the most touristy city on the island and you can find plenty of souvenirs here. There is a beautiful archeological museum within town, but stick to the streets along the port and shore for most shops and restaurants.

Hotel

Negroponte Resort

Eretria, Evia, Greece
 

Negroponte is one of the closest hotels to Adriana's house, about 5 minutes by car. If you're looking for sun & sand, they have a lovely pool area and a private beach.

Travel Note

Chalkida

Chalkida is the capital of Evia and a bustling little city. They have a lovely boardwalk along the water with cafes and bars, and if you venture a few streets away from the sea you can find shopping along Avanton. Venture across the Old Bridge and Karababa's Castle is a short 15 minute walk. There's a great little cafe at the foot of the castle that's perfect for a mid-afternoon drink.

Hotel

Paliria Hotel

2 Eleftheriou Venizelou
Chalkida, Evia 341 00, Greece
 +30 2221 028001

If you'd prefer to stay in a more urban environment, Paliria Hotel is right in the middle of the Chalkida boardwalk. No direct access to a beach or pool, but you're still only 15 minutes away from Adriana's family summer house.

Travel Note

Day Trip to Delphi

Delphi, home of Apollo's Oracle, is about 1.5 hours from Chalkida by car...perfect for a day trip!

Travel Note

Day Trip to Athens

While we suggest spending at least one night in Athens, it's a very easy day trip from Evia. Look under "After the Wedding" for more information about where to stay and what to see.
