Hydra, Saronic Islands, Greece (Pop.: 3,000)

Fancy a trip to Greece but want to avoid the traffic? Travel by hydrofoil or catamaran to the island of Hydra, where no vehicles (besides garbage trucks) are allowed. Horses, donkeys and water taxis are your main options, but the city is so compact that practically everyone just walks.
