Be sure to take a walk along the promenade when the sun is down to see the taverns all lit up to create a traditional Greek atmosphere.  Near the port there are many cafes to stop in for some local music, a sip of ouzo and some pistachios. Above the port there was an ancient village called Minoa, which according to legend was the place where Minos spent the summer.
