Historical Hydra Walks
I am Maria Voulgari. I was born and raised on Hydra. I took my bachelors degree from the Historical & Archaeological University of Greece and I am passionate about the history of Hydra.
Art, history and architecture converge on Hydra making this island unique.
My desire is to take you on a relaxed stroll around the town linking the monuments and buildings to the history of the island for you.
We will talk about piracy, trade and the role of Hydra in the Greek War of Independence.
We will also talk about the Greek presidents, prime ministers and naval generals who were born here.
And we won't forget the artists that fell in love with Hydra and made it their home.
