In ancient times, Eretria City was an important religious, cultural, and philosophical center of Evia where one of the first Socratic philosophy schools was established and the Apollo cult thrived. The modern town, however, is a popular island resort with well-organized beaches, clear sea waters, and diverse entertainment facilities for any taste. Still, apart from a high-quality beach vacation, Eretria takes pride in the abundance of historical sites and various places of interest.
There is no direct route to Eretria in the system of public transportation, and a transfer car remains the best solution. The “Hellenic Taxi” individual transfers guarantee a safe and comfortable ride to any location in Greece with your entire luggage and without unnecessary stops and changes.
