Oh, silly me! ducky got it, didn't he. I'm still recovering from mega workload - like emerging from the Underworld. Older and wiser - and totally knackered.

Another extract from the rough guide, maybe too easy?

"The modern quality of ------------(12 letters) is due largely to a disastrous fire......which levelled most of the old plaster houses along a labyrinth of Ottoman lanes, including the entire Jewish quarter..... rendering nearly half the population homeless."

I've recently read a book about that area which is why I recognised it!

I'd better start looking at a travel guide. Does it have to be Greece?

O.K. Here's the next one.

Situated in a very fertile plain with vineyards and olive trees, it still keeps its ancient name, as officially it is called --------. However, it is mostly known as --------, due to the fortress constructed by the Venetians and still standing there.
