The upper reaches of the town are accessible until 2PM, 14:00 local. It is hot, steep and beyond magical. Every footfall walks in thousands of footsteps across history. There are layers of magic, ruble and unearthed history here. If you are interested in what it...More

Captivated by our entire Windstar cruise, we were totally blown away by the simplicity and allure of this tiny island in the Aegean. A hidden outpost, how fortunate we were to be on a smaller ship so we could make port here. Hiked to the...More

This place is one of my favorites. There is a comfortable vibe and everyone is warm and welcoming. What a view.... The craftsmen are also quite unique, make sure you visit the Olive wood craftsmen in the beginning of the entry to the city.
