One of ancient's Greece richest cities, due to its lead and silver mines, has now become to a big industrial museum.
After the closing of the mines, the place is trying to survive through tourism.

    How do I go to the top of the mine? Where is it exactly and are visitors allowed? Have you ever visited the Monastery in the village of Plaka above Lavrion called Aios Pavlos? It is very interesting. Ask me about it.

    Sometimes you find what you want in the unlikeliest of places.

    The harbour area sounds wonderful to just hang out.. Quite a variation of hot chocolate - I'd like to try that. Sounds lovely to visit.
