A cute seaside town with rich maritime history

Galaxidi / Γαλαξίδι

Until 1950, this seaside town on the southern tip of the mainland was cut off, the only access being by sea–hence Galaxidi’s rich nautical past, and home to some of the country’s most important shipping families.

The Nautical & Historical Museum pays tribute to this past and overall the Island on the Mainland, as it’s fondly referred to, has tiny cobbled streets, colourful bougainvillaea plants adorning the neoclassical houses–some inhabited, some small boutique establishments to stay in.

Galaxidi / Γαλαξίδι

It’s a non-commercial, traditional place to visit and not big on nightlife. Its charm is relaxing along the harbour sipping a glass of wine with the mountainous backdrop adding to the atmosphere. It livens up considerably, however, during Apokries (Carnival) season for the annual Galaxidi Flour War.

Base yourself here to visit the ancient Oracle of Delphi.
