Worth to visit on nice wheather. Not a long way but it takes more than 1 hour. I do not suggest to visit on weekends due to it is so crowded. Poor horses. :(

We visited the Biggest Island. In terms of its dimension it is named as Big Island. I had a visit 15 years before and here was like a summery region. But now like a small Istanbul. As i checked the previously comment, even if they reflect the past, please do not take any phaeton.

I can have a house and live in this Island 12 month. There was just one scary place on the top of the island. As i learnt from our guide it was used as a Greek Orphanage. But now it is empthy. A ghost apartment.
