This hilly Aegean island, legendary birthplace of the goddess Hera, rests along a narrow strait across from the Turkish coast. Stroll through the streets of Old Town, lined with Turkish-style houses. Visit the Archaeological Museum, housing artifacts from the Heraioin, and be sure to view the lighted harbor at night. Also explore the 6th century AD Eupalina Tunnel, and enormous aqueduct built through the mountains to supply the city with water.
The Euro (EUR), the currency of the European Union, is the official currency of Greece.
