Evia Sightseeing

Halkida, the island's capital, is accessible from a fork on the main Athens - Lamia highway.  A swing bridge carries traffic across the narrow Evripos Straits, with their tidal current which Aristotle tried hard to explain in ancient times. 

The road from Halkida to Eretria passes by the fine Malakonta beach, which has ample facilities for tourists and then goes through the village of Vassiliko which possesses distinctive local colour and a Venetian tower.  Close by are the seaside settlements of Lefkandi and Kambos. 

Continuing South along the coastal road, on the shores of the Gulf of Euboea, one comes upon the township of Amarinthos, which has a fine beach, tranquil surroundings, and plenty of attractive fish dishes to offer. 
Nearby are the Byzantine churches of Metamorphosis and Kimissis Theotokou.  At Vlihos there is a Macedonian grave.  Ano Vathia is a quaint village, with its Byzantine Church of Zoodochos Pighi and the monastery of Agios Nikolaos. 

Following along the foothills of Mt. Skliro, the road leads into the town of Aliveri, with its spreading plain, its old tower, and church of Agios Loukas.  In the same district stands the church of Agios Nikolaos, which contains well preserved Byzantine frescoes.  At Aliveri there is a major electric power station.
