Being on of the most attractive cities of Greece, the old town features some stunning historic sites and creates the unique atmosphere of the city.
The town is a maze of narrow streets dominated by the 16th century fortress. Around every corner can you can find a chapel, old mansion or secret garden square.
The narrow streets house small shops of every commercial nature, dominated by the ‘gold shops’. Among the bustle, look out for those shops and stalls selling local items like wild honey, fig cakes and handmade lace.
The old town was laid out by the Venetians in the 14th century and features narrow alleys lined with multi-storeyed, coloured buildings with red tiled roofs, creating a charming scene.
The central place for all activities is the Liston, an arcaded row of cafes and restaurants.
