Originally, the entire town once consisted of a castle. It is however not very much to see when you enter this beautiful vacation home . Instead, a cityscape, which can inspire with a typical Greek style presents itself the holidaymakers.
Rotary and pivot of city life is of course the port. On the water you will discover small fishermen punting as well as several yachts. This special mix is supplemented by the fascinating sights of the luxury cruise ship that occasionally pass through this port. In the early morning, the fishermen here present a colourful bustle. While some prepare a new exit the others sell even their fresh catches.
At noon, the promenade is then completely flooded by tourists, which would come from the nearby hotels and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere. A visit to one of the cafes here represents a special recommendation from its terrace you have a beautiful view on the water.
However, the views of the harbour is not the only thing that can trigger a fascination.
