Which Greek city is your favorite? Feel free to choose from cities within Greece or cities where Greeks played a role. Be sure to share why!



My favorite is Fira - "the modern capital of the Greek aegean island Santorini. "Fir", actually, is a different pronounciation of "Thira", the ancient name of the island itself".







I like Fira best because of the contrast of the white buildings and the bleak, towering surroundings.

I am living in Istanbul and I think it is not necessary to talk about its greek heritage, it has already known and there are also a lot of sources about it. That's why, I am passing Istanbul. 

Balıkesir, it is also centrum of Balıkesir Province(green area)


I have found it in the wall of muslim tomb (Türbe-http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T%C3%BCrbe)
