  • Good presentation in an old castle with great view. The price is fair. You should also visit the beautiful church.
  • Excellent museum! There are multiple buildings, dedicated to different domains of research of the islands. Make sure you have at least a couple of hours, for there is a lot to see here. Would rate as a 5, if not for a surprising siesta time for such a major museum and lack of English translations. Though I must note that the views from Acropolis, the cats and the care with which such a vast museum was created and is being maintained, make up for any possible faults.
