Statues Tips (2)

touch Aristotelis toe

it's a miracle and a well kept secret among tourists, i.e. all tourists know about it, but the locals do not:)

So, if you have a little wish... or a big one, you should touch the toe of Aristotelis thinking of it. And everything will come true!!!

Personally I don't remember my wishes, but I remember I had a lot of them... that's why the toe of Aristotelis even shines in the darkness!
