Well worth a visit for the views. A pleasant wander around the ruins of the town,devastated in the quake of 1953. A small taverna overlooking the sea is a nice place to spend half an hour. Recommend a taxi up and walk back down.

I would think so - but best to check - if flights are arriving/departing then it will be open. It is a locals' "local " and I don't think it shuts in the winter
