Spetses, an island boasting a long maritime tradition, is famous for its significant Naval contribution to Greece's 1821 War of Independence. The island has managed to retain its individual traditional character thanks to its well-preserved grand mansions, once owned by seafaring Captains and still bearing eloquent witness to the island's glorious past.
You will visit the Museum of Bouboulina, named for a female warrior who played a significant role in the War of Independence. Visit her house to admire its carved, wooden Florentine ceiling, 18th- and 19th-century furniture, interesting collection of old weapons, fine porcelain and rare books.
Finally, enjoy a taste of the famous ouzo (licorice-flavored Greek liqueur) or a glass of wine on the waterfront.
Please note: Wear comfortable walking shoes.
