The place has a curious pirate tale or two that occurred in yesteryears. One of the most famous archaeological sites here is Delos, a tiny landmass just 2 kilometers off the mainland’s western coast. Delos’s whole area has been declared a national museum where you can also appreciate the beaches and other attractions.
