description

Evia, the second largest island of Greece and the third in the eastern Mediterranean, is located close to the Prefecture of Attica. However, it has a somewhat mainland character, since two bridges - the modern, suspended one and the older, sliding one - link it to mainland Greece, called "Sterea Ellada".  Evia has wonderful beaches, a pleasant climate, renowned monuments, many thermal springs and tasty food and is, therefore, a popular and nearby destination for the inhabitants of Athens.
