Ask anyone what’s the right time to visit Apollonia and the collective answer will surely be “at night”, at the peak of the nightlife.
Even so, a morning stroll across its back alleys will show its other side.
Tidy yards, bright white houses, small chapels that, along with souvenirs, bars and snack spots, create a Cycladic harmony of liveliness at night and peace in the daylight.
After going shopping, store to store, and having walked across every back alley, stop at Laki’s café… a sense of old times, like being an extra in an old Greek black-and-white movie. An orangeade will refresh you to wrap up your stroll with a visit to the Folklore Museum, to get a glimpse of island life in the past. Everyday use objects, textiles, pottery, outfits and paintings. Just ask first for working hours at 2284033730.
Go for it! Be it food, a swim or relaxation…
In a few hours time the Alley (=Steno) changes face… puts on its bests and invites you out, to dance…!
