Fodor's Review

Stroll the main bazaar street, Ermou, which goes from port to port. Walk past the fish market on the southern end, where men haul in their sardines, mullet, and octopus. Narrow lanes are filled with antiques shops and grand old mansions. Head toward the sea to find the elegant suburb of Varia, once home to the modern "naive" artist Theophilos; Stratis Elefteriadis 'Tériade', famous publisher of modern art journals; and the poet Odysseus Elytis.
