Next up on the itinerary: explore the historical opulence of Byzantine Castle Ruins, pause for some serene contemplation at Ekklisia Panagia Platsani, indulge your senses at some of the top wineries in the area, and do a tasting at Domaine Sigalas.

For traveler tips, more things to do, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Fira driving holiday planner.
