Fresh off-the-ferry visitors are in for a treat, since the languorous port of Nisyros will not prepare them for the energetic underground going-ons. Welcome to the super-star of Greek volcanoes! Nisyros is part of the Dodecanese archipelago and one of those islands that you need a LOT of time to get to. We are talking at least 15 hours of sea-gazing, sun-bathing, seagull-counting, snack-munching - mind you, you will need that long to leave all mortal cares behind and set the mood for the absolute miracle that Nisyros is!
