Any cool things, places and churches to go to there? Favorite beaches and restaurants?

Just have your parents buy you the island and you'll have plenty of time to figure out what you like there.

But it had not been in Tess's power - nor is it in anybody's power - to feel the whole truth of golden opinions while it is possible to profit by them. She - and how many more - might have ironically said to God with Saint Augustine, "Thou hast counselled a better course than thou hast permitted."

Wait, this was a legitimate question. I know there are many people on here that would answer without being so RUDE like above.

Oh lol. Sorry A. And thank you for clarifying. I mean I'm pretty sure you can wear nicely and stuff, I don't have to dress like I am a thief. Correct?

I have never been there, so I would bow to Arachne's knowledge in this area.....but in heavily pickpocketed areas

no visible jewelry,  no expensive bags, no electronics constantly being taken in and out of bags... no designer clothes that would indicate to a thief that what you have is worth his time.

neat and tidy is find, patently expensive and rich, says 'target'

You can dress nicely, but better not go about showing off your smartphone, camera, games console and iPad. At best, someone may snatch them while you're looking elsewhere; at worst, your family may be pegged as the tourists with more money than sense and get mugged.

Things are financially very bad in Greece right now. There are angry and desperate people everywhere.

Being a big family (5) renting a Range Rover wasn't the best idea. Thanks for the heads up, will let my mom know once I find her on this plane  :laugh:

Make sure to visit the Santorini frescoes of the Minoan Civilization.  Quite impressive and quite advanced from c. 1800 B.C.

He might be.  We have not heard from him for awhile.
