travel42 Professional Cruise Port of Call Review

The striking Dodecanese island of Patmos, Greece, has whitewashed houses and fairly secluded beaches. Its tavernas serve superb fresh fish.

Relatively unpopulated (it's mostly home to shepherds and fishermen), Patmos' primary attractions are its Grotto of the Apocalypse (where St. John wrote the Book of Revelations), and the Byzantine Monastery of St. John, which has ancient manuscripts, an ornate chapel, jeweled robes and a spectacular ocean view (it's atop a hill).
