Akrotiri, known as the “Pompei of the Aegean”, is considered to be one of the most fascinating and important archaeological sites on the entire island. It reveals part of an excavated city that flourished thousands of years ago, nearly 20 centuries BC. Similar to Pompeii, it was buried by the ash of a large volcanic eruption that occurred on the island in about 1613 BC and is thought to be one of the most important sites not only in Greece but in the entire region of southeast Europe.

This looks super comfy. I love sleeping in hammocks. If you put a thick (>4") memory foam topper on it, I bet it would be heavenly.
