Serifos is a Greek island in the Aegean Sea, which is similar to the Sifnos but Serifos has a more relaxed kind of vibe compared to the other Greek Islands. As you reach the port of Livadi, you could see the beautiful landscape of the island, and the Serifos Town, Chora which is situated on the top of a steep hill.
Once you get up to the hill, you will come across the ruins of the Venetian Castle. This castle was built in the 13th century as a fortress to keep the people safe from the pirate attacks.
