I have been going to the sponge docks for around 30 years. Always take out of town visitors there. It is a like being in the Greek Islands, which I have visited. Very charming. Can find some good souvenirs to take home as a reminder of your visit to the area. And the food -- Great. Just try any place. Never had a bad meal or desert on the Sponge Docks.

Lots of Greek flair and food! The docks are busy and sponges abound! Great shops line the street friendly locals. Enjoyed strolling the Streisand taking in the views a nice way to spend the afternoon.

Walked both sides of the street and visited the gift shops, most of them have a greek theme.
Had dinner ant hellas and took home pastries from their bakery.
