Which is approx. 7 kilometers from the villas, has its origins in Venetian times and most of the old city is contained within broad, ancient walls. Within these walls, and clustering around the harbor, are well preserved Venetian Merchants houses with an Ottoman Empire Turkish mosque on the eastern side of the sheltered water. Thankfully, all old buildings are protected from destruction and most have been restored without damage to their facades. It seems that nearly every house now offers their rooms, roofless restaurants or interesting shops. The streets are narrow and mostly impassable to cars making the whole area wonderful for aimless wander! At night the place awakens and around the harbor the lights of the taverns twinkle on the still water, the calm of which belies the buzz of life all around.
