Palaiokastritsa 490 83, Greece

This attractive town holds many delights, including some great beaches (the smallest one is the best), and a surprisingly good aquarium. The best views are from the Theotokou monastery which has a majestic setting on the sea cliffs above the town. Even higher up are the ruins of the Angelokastro, a Byzantine castle a few kilometers to the north.
