Evia is the third largest island in Eastern Mediterranean and at the same time it is connected with mainland by to bridges. The distance from Athens is 80 km.

It is easy to reach Evia in short time by boat from the port of Oropos on the north coast of Attica to Halkida town, or from Rafina port on the east coast of Attica to Marmari, or by car arriving to the town of Halkida through the bridge.

On the north of the island and at the cape Artemisio in 1928 fishermen brought out of the depth of the sea two precious statues, decorating now the archaeological museum of Athens.

Halkida, the capital of the island, is a modern town with traditional two storey houses and modern buildings. Starting from this town and travelling south you will reach the villages of Nea Lampsakos, Vassiliko, Malaconda, Eretria, with the ruins of the ancient theatre and the archaeological museum, and Amarinthos.

On the southwest coast the town of Karystos offers an unspoiled environment, clean sandy beaches, archaeological sites and authentic Greek dishes.

The legendary Karystos, son of the centaur Chiron, gave his name to this town according to the Greek Mythology. Karystians were the first Greeks to stand up to the Persians and suffered greatly. They were at the peak of prosperity during the Hellenistic and Roman periods having their civic centre at Chora. Franks built the Fort Bourtzi and the Castello Rosso, which became the habitation centre during the Turkish period.

The modern town was designed by the Bavarian architect Bierbach under the commission of the first king of Greece, Otho.
