With its wonderful beaches, cosmopolitan lifestyle, Venetian mansions and charming neoclassical homes, with pebble mosaic courtyards, Spetses charms the visitor with all the pleasures of a Greek island - in a day. No cars are permitted and transportation is by horse-drawn carriages and motor cycles. Spetses' famed history includes its role as one of Greece's, greatest naval powers. Luxury yachts moored in the old harbour, restaurants, cafes and sophisticated bars create a summer mood tempting the visitor to enjoy seafood delicacies, ouzo and late nights under the stars.
