4.- The island of Hydra

This small Greek island of 3,000 inhabitants does not allow road traffic either. Visitors arrive by ferry, to enjoy its views walking through its picturesque streets.


In Switzerland there are several winter resorts where cars are not allowed. Among them are Braunwald, Riederalp, Saas-Fee or Wengen.
