TOP OF CHAPTER Hora (Andros) POP 1801 Hora perches dramatically on a rocky promontory and has surprising views through the neoclassical mansions to two vibrant bays on either side: Niborio and Paraporti.
The peninsula is tipped by the remains of a Venetian fortress, and the town itself owes its grand mansions and squares to both the Venetian settlement and the shipowners who came to inhabit it.
Hora’s cultural pedigree is burnished by its Museum of Contemporary Art, an impressive archaeological museum and several important churches.

TOP OF CHAPTER Around Andros It’s worth renting a car to explore Andros’ vast mountains and sprinkling of villages as well as to reach its footpaths and beaches.
The north of the island, with the lush watershed around Arni, gives way to raw windswept hills as the road zigzags to Vourkoti and Agios Nikolaou with its sweeping views.
Paleopoli, 7km south of Batsi on the coast road, is the site of Ancient Andros and its sunken harbour.
Only rubble remains but the small Archaeological Museum of Paleopoli ( 22829 41985; 9am-4pm Tue, Thu & Fri) displays finds.
The island is cleaved by a sweeping agricultural valley and loads of small villages with springs, often marked by marble lions’ heads and the like, surround Hora.
The road winds through Sariza, Stenies, Mesathouri, Strapouries and Menites – all fun to explore.
In the south, visit quaint agricultural villages like Livadia, Kochilou, Piskopio and Aidonia, which has ruined tower houses.
The area’s charming landscape of fields and cypresses encircle Ormos Korthiou, an uninspiring bay-side village.
Activities Footpaths WALKING Andros is crisscrossed by trails.
For example, hike up the dramatic Dipotamata Gorge, signposted as you drive inland, after Sineti.
The trail, cobbled part of the way, leads past ancient bridges and water mills and through vivid foliage, water burbling below.
Many paths are difficult to locate, so get hold of the newly published Hiking in Andros guide, free from the city, or an excellent map (Anavasi’s Andros map; www.anavasi.
Better yet, book a guided walk with Trekking Andros ( 6937236362; www.trekkingandros.
