Evia, better known as Euboia, is the largest Greek island after Crete. It's great for walking - and also for getting 'off the beaten tourist track' - as although their are alot of greek holiday-makers, mass foreign tourism does not impact here. Historically it is famous as the island that Agamemnon’s fleet set sail from for Troy. With great beaches, forests, quaint villages and hot springs, it's an excellent way to see the 'real greece', and is only an hour's ferry ride from Athens. You can also take the car, as bridges connect it with the mainland.
