... a little turned around and ended up at the rental car place a little late, but it turned out fine. I can say we were glad to be done with that! We had booked a hotel that claimed to be close to the Acropolis thinking we could explore a little that evening. Unfortunately this hotel has some major false advertising.

Back on board before 5.30 to watch ...
... is to the whole of the Greek nation. The main industries of the island have been pumice stones and wine making. The latter is believed to have been part of the island's history for over 3,000 years. Tourism obviously is now a massive part of the island's economy.
After touring across the island, we stopped to spend around one and a half hours in the ancient township of Oia. This is extremely fascinating town, with very old but small ...
