This church is right in the port/ on the boardwalk. Very easy to find and walk to. The museum was closed. I was told it closes on Monday’s, so travelers should be aware of that. I was able to go inside and see the church-...More

Hydra is a picturesque island with no cars or motor bikes; travel is generally by donkey. While there isn't much to do when on a 3 island tour as I was, there was a walking tour which included the Komiseos Theotokou Monastery, worth visiting.

This is a beautiful 'working' church and monastery. Just back from the bustling harbour but has a real feeling of tranquility. It doesn't take long to look around but it's well worth seeing (and free!) : ))

The monastery is small but exquisite, highly recommended as an attraction if you want to spend an hour or so soaking up a bit of the community culture and beliefs. Stunning decoration and unusual architecture. And best of all it's a fully functioning active part...More

Visit around 11ish in the morning so you can enter the actual church (not in beach wear though) because this is a real treat. The cloisters square off on two tiers protecting the monastery in the centre. You'll see monuments to the navel heroes and...More

Unlike other Greek islands, Hydra can be done in one day tour when you stay in Athens... It will take 1.5 hrs flying cat (fast boat) from Piraeus, and once we arrive Hydra ports, it was an unforgetable feeling look at deep blue sea color...More
