Designation as a traditional settlement since 1978, Galaxidi is a stately beauty that travels. The port still carries the aura of the times when it was full bratseres, schooners and Lloveras moored competent and women mends sails into specially designed one-room lounges on the first floor of the mansions. Almost a century later, life moves to other rhythms and Galaxidi is now a quiet town and ideal weekend destination for Athenians. The atmosphere of the past has remained intact thanks to the love of the locals for the tradition and the mild tourist development, with small beautiful houses in restored mansions and tidy restaurants, offers a sophisticated package. It is worth making the beautiful walk by the sea from the port to the pine hill of School of Tourism or the other side to Chirolaka but to go up by car to the Savior monastery to enjoy the view. Besides standalone destination for weekend, however, Galaxidi and is an excellent short ride to fish for visitors to Arachova.
