This really is another side of Greece. Isolated in the mountains as it is, the town is frequented mainly by locals and a few hardy tourists but if Ryan Air opened up a boat plane service between the Thames Estuary & the lake here, people would flock! It’s quite an authentic place; the walled castle contains mainly old residential housing with a couple of cafés, a museum and a Byzantium church. The whole old town area protrudes into the lake itself while the rest of the town offers the bars, restaurants &… sellers of ornamental silverware (see previous post) that you might expect. With a backdrop of the mountains on the other side of the lake, I can find little to fault the place. Apart from the ‘miserable bastard’ at the campsite… (that’s the guy on the reception David, not me!)
Have reset my password so testing again!!
Looks like a real gem and hidden treasure today!
It’s working! Well done 🙂
Glad to see the ‘jewel’ of your tour through Greece has been at the end and that you travel to Albania with softer, fonder memories of Greece.
