ablutsauger 07 Nov 2015The best village on MilosPlaka may not be THAT excellent, but when you have in mind that Milos itself is not touristically developed, Plaka is the place with most joy.
- It has wonderful and absolutely magnificent view over Milos
- View, view, did I say view?
- Two museums (Archaeological, Folklore)
- The most non-industrial souvenir shops are here
- Nice architecture, typical for old towns in this area, with flowers and colourful streets, although small
The things is that it is small. It takes you ten minutes to walk around the beautiful part, ten minutes for each museum... but ok.
Tripiti and catacombs, ancient theatre, ancient Milos and Klima are near, within normal walking distance.
Eating was small problem, because we somehow got back several times on the most famous restaurant there, although not perfect, because we didn't know where else to go. The other one we tried was so horrible that we decided - no more experiments :)
ablutsauger 06 Nov 2015Small and cuteYou'll probably pass million times next to this museum while in Plaka, so why not visit it?
The museum is relatively small but full of items used in everyday-life of citizens of Milos.
The "warmest" part of the concept is that the articles were donated by regular people - clothes, machines, irons, stools... old things they had in their houses, boxes, basements... and it makes it look domestic and common.
ablutsauger 05 Nov 2015Small and informativeTo be short - the museum is very very small, with very few exhibits, and you won't need more than 15 mins to pass through it. However, there is a lot of historical information in English, so you can enjoy in educating yourself, because we usually skip reading longer stories in bigger museums.
patrinlove 27 Aug 2008Not for the youngPlaka is the capital of Milos but it is actually not much developed. I thought Adamas was more appropriate for tourists. Plaka is nice to go for a walk and have a coffee. But there are no big bars to have fun, just some pubs spread here and there. It has some places to stay, but I would advice you to choose somewhere close to the beach and especially if you are young and crazy for nightlife.
