A left turn as you disembark the ferry takes you east to the bus station (tel. 22970/22-787) on Plateia Ethneyersias. There's good service to most of the island, with trips every hour in summer to the Temple of Aphaia and Ayia Marina (3€); tickets must be purchased before boarding. Every Saturday and Wednesday in summer, Panoramic Bus Tours (tel. 22970/22-254) offers a 3 1/2-hour bus tour (6€) of the island, taking in the Temple of Aphaia, several beaches and villages, and the Hellenic Wildlife Hospital (tel. 22970/28-267; www.ekpaz.gr) at Pachia Rachi, where monkeys, wild boar, crocodiles, owls, and other exotic creatures are rehabilitated and housed before being returned to the wild. The tour has a commentary in Greek and English and is a great introduction to the island. Taxis are easy to find in Aegina town; if you want to take a taxi tour of the island, negotiate the fare before you set off. Your hotel can usually get you a decent price to rent either bicycles or mopeds; if you just show up at a rental place, the price is usually higher. An ordinary bike should cost about 12€ per day; mopeds, from 25€, except on summer weekends, when the sky is the limit. Motorcycle and moped agents are required to, but do not always, ask for proof that you are licensed to drive such vehicles and give you a helmet. Be sure to check the tires and brakes.
