By day or night

Throughout the sunshine hours, this town’s winding streets are flooded with sunlight and friendly locals are going about their day. At night though, pavement cafés and open-air bars come to life with Greek music and traditional folk dancing. Looking for something a little livelier? Buzzing Bar Street will be your best bet.

A fabulous film setting
