Andros is the northernmost island of the group with a great naval tradition and no landscape like the postcards from the Cyclades: apart from the sandy beaches, there are rocky coastlines, mountain ranges alternating with fertile plains, lush vegetation and abundantly flowing streams. Ándros is definitely worth a visit and can be seen solely as a cultural tourism destination, thanks to its museums.
The globally acknowledged Museum of Modern Art, managed by the Vassilis and Eliza Goulandris Foundation, houses unique collections of paintings and sculptures, whereas the archaeological museums in Hóra and Paleópolis represent the ancient history of the island with their exhibits.
The Cyclades Olive Museum is a fine example of a small pre-industrial, animal-powered, olive oil-producing unit that is definitely a must-see site.
Andros is one of the loveliest places to have a wedding in Greece – it is perfect for couples who want a chilled out wedding, and offers an amazing atmosphere. Weddings at Andros are amazing because the photo ops are just incredible.
