Located merely 80 km from Athens lies the city of the sacred fountain of Arethousa, serving as the gateway to the island of Evia.
Its advantageous geographical position has made it a melting pot of diverse cultures and ideas throughout the centuries, causing it to be a bone of contention for numerous foreign invaders. Presently, the cosmopolitan city of Chalkida is the commercial and administrative hub of the island, built on both sides of the Evripos straits. It is a preferred destination for Athenians seeking a brief respite from the frenzied pace of the metropolis. Accessing the city has become a breeze thanks to its state-of-the-art cable bridge.
