It is an old town that is lovely to walk through. Great sceneries but we didn't eat there. We preferred to eat near the sea, at sirocco.

Stroll along the harbour to the Portara with beautiful views of the old town then follow the alleyways looking at the shops, trying to find your way to the Kastro and the cathedral. You can't get lost and the people are so friendly everywhere.

Must go there at least once on your trip. We went there for two sunsets and it was beautiful. It gets busy so have dinner and start making your way up at least an hour before the sunset to stake out a good spot. We...More

This is a lovely area to wander around. Plenty of good little shops and markets. Leads up to the castle and archealogical museum and Catholic cathedral which is nice to visit.

Great shops and restaurants among ancient architecture. . . an amazing experience! Put on your walking shoes as there are some steps. . . but well worth a stroll through the mystical, magical narrow streets!

The town is cool but you will want to rent a vehicle to explore the largest island in the Cyclades. Therein lies the problem. The town even in the somewhat off season harbors a bustling little village. Complete with schools and angry protesting students. Students...More
