|Our Magnificent Cruise Ship...|
Seriously though someone should tell this guy
that the water goes on the outside of the boat.
|Narrow Streets in the Old Town|
Anyway, she gave us some tips about what to see and where to go and what to do. She directed us to the main street in town that was near the esplanade and the old fort. Before we left the store she told us that the main street area was known as the 'Greek French Riviera,' and when we arrived it was very clear why!
It was a beautiful wide street lined on one side by stores and restaurants, and on the other was the esplanade with the Mediterranean Sea beyond it. The street itself was wide and incredibly clean. It was predominantly for pedestrian use with only a few vehicles thrown into the mix. Smooth 12 inch stone tiles were selected as the material for the street surface. Above the first floor of the restaurants and shops the buildings appeared to be primarily residential. Many of the buildings were clearly influenced by French style down to the small balconies and the color of the paint. As these entries are supposed to be Landscape Architecture at a Glance I will wrap this up and let the photos tell the rest of the story.
