    Great job with the Before Midnight filming locations, with the exception of one error: The pier where they watch the sunset is actually the smaller pier which is located southeast of the pier that you have marked. If you zoom in on the Google satellite view you can see that the northwest corner of the smaller pier has collapsed, just like the pier in the film. Also, I just returned from Greece where I visited the pier firsthand and confirmed it’s the one in the film. BTW it’s actually the same pier where they filmed the final scene of the film, even though (while it’s not explicitly indicated) the film gives the impression that the two scenes take place at a different piers.

    One more note, you can actually do a Google Streetview directly from each of the piers, where you can see pretty clearly which is the correct one:

    Hi, great job! I just spent a day location hunting and found all these sites and more, including a tour of the Leigh Fermor house. But the chapel you identify in Platsa is not the one on the map . The right one is the tiny Byzantine one that’s west of the main square about twenty paces up a narrow path. If you have an email I’ll be pleased to send an update – and a bonus as the main square in Platsa also has the building used in the film’s main publicity shot. But thanks – couldn’t have done this without you! Great work.
