Where to shop
The basic commercial area is at the port and generally up to the main shopping at the north. Some local cheese is very typical but a nice present will be the ouzo of Limnos.
Ouzo is one of the most famous greek booze and people drink it often with fishes especially in the islands.
Most of the shops use to close at noon and they open again in the afternoon.
