Lots and lots of tiny shops set in even small alleyways. Plenty of flowers and colour, as well as all the whitewash. A rewally interesting area that's worth a visit.

Lovely place to walk around. So many shops and food options. I would highly recommend going to some of the trendy looking bars for a late night drink overlooking the port.

You can enter the alleyways or ‘old market’ from any of the steps leading from the strip of restaurants on the port and get lost in the boutiques, tavernas and bars. Never usually one for town life (more of... More
