Stopping at Flisvos Marina you can view the two warships and also look around the marina as well. Our party walked around the barrier of the Marina to visit the two Hellenic warships however they were not open in May 2016

Do not miss it! Educational for the children and interesting for adults. Closes early though (I think 15:00). Afterwards you may take a walk and have coffee or lunch at the nearby Marina Floisvos.
