The breathtaking views is what I miss the most about Greek islands. This feeling of being literally surrounded by the Mediterranean sea, of seeing it everywhere you look, is quite unique. Most of the islands are so small that it makes the sea feels gigantic in comparison. If you had the heat to the mix, it's only natural that it's also the land of rooftops and terraces. The houses in Symi's old town, the Chorio, are often quite small, yet they managed to have several of them. Because, as the sun begins to cool down, there's no better spot than up there.
