Mentioned in 'Iliad', once powerful Halkida (aka Halkis or Chalkis) spawned several colonies around the Mediterranean. The name derives from the bronze that was manufactured here in antiquity (‘halkos’ means bronze in Greek). Today there's little to detain tourists, but it’s a lively commercial centre, and the gateway to Evia. As evening approaches, the waterfront promenade by the old bridge comes to life.
