You can see Ionian city culture how they tailored art and construction. The most amazing piece is Celcius Library for me. You can see Tampe of Artemis ruins too. This little walking gives you a lot of flashback. Everybody needs to see there with professional...More

I recommend you not to go there directly and take a guide who tries to be guide of the random people. I can recommend you to book a guided tour from jollytur or even on tripadvisor !
