Lesvos (or Lesbos) is the third largest island of Greece and has a long
history that goes back more than 3.000 years. It has been the birthplace of
famous people, such as the poets Sappho and Alcaeos, Arion the Guitarist,
and Pittacus, one of the seven wise men of ancient Greece. A tradition that
even continues today and gives the island that distinctive atmosphere which
makes it so different from the rest. Sappho's reputation as a lover of her
own sex, has given the word "Lesbian" an international currency. Her
reputation is based on some of the fragments of her poetry: "I was in love
with you once, Atthis, long ago..."

Rich in olives and fish, the island has an economic balance rare in the
Aegean and because of its relative prosperity the island is very easy for
travellers to reach even in the quiet months of winter. By air, one can get
to Lesbos from Athens three times a day and from Salonica three times a
week. By Ferry-boat, one can reach Lesbos every day from Piraeus, and from
Salonica on a less frequent schedule.

Mytilene is the capital of the island and has a population of 30,000 people.
This is about one third of the total population of the island. It is built
amphitheatrically around its well preserved Byzantine Castle. Not very far
from there, on the north-east side of town, one can find the Hellenistic
Theatre with its superb acoustics and capacity of 10,000 people. Further in
the suburb of Varia one can visit the Theophilos Museum.
Twelve kilometers from Mytilene, near the town of Moria, one can visit the
Roman Aqueduct that was built in the second century AD. Going further up
north by the east coast, thru a series of beautiful little villages one will
arrive in the town of Mantamados, famous for its cheeses and the fine
pottery. The next stop will be Skala Sikaminias, one of the most charming
fishing villages one would ever see.

And then, at the northest point of the island one will find the picturesque
village of Mithymna (also known as Molivos), with its mediaeval castle and
the traditional architecture. Molivos is also the islands best known resort.
By some it has been called "the closed place to paradise, on earth". The
association with Arts is appropriate enough, for it was here in Mithymna
that the head of Orpheus is said to have been washed ashore after his
dismemberment of the Thracian women. Another mythical citizen of Mithymna
was the lyric poet and musician Arion. It has been said that he has been
saved by the music-loving dolphin.
Only a short distance of 5 Km SW of Molivos the village of Petra can be
found. Petra has one of the best sandy beaches of the island.
Again further south the village of Agia Paraskevi is situated. This village
has a lot of old mansions and is known for the Bull Festival that has been
celebrated since more than two hundred years. Near the village lay ruins of
an ancient temple of Napaios Apollo and the ruins of an Ionian temple dated
from the 3rd century BC. This temple was dedicated to Zeus, Hera and
In the island's center, not far from Agia Paraskevi, lays the modern town
Kalloni. It is famous for its sardines which are caught in the nearby bay
called the Gulf of Kalloni. On this gulf one will also find the popular
summer resort Skala Kalloni with its beautiful sandy beaches. Also near the
center of the island another well known town is Agiassos.
This town is famous for its pottery. Going further south again we reach the
towns of Plomari and Vatera which have the most superb beaches of the
island. At the western tip of Lesvos, Sigri is a pretty fishing village with
a nice little beach and a castle that goes back to the 18th century. Not far
from there lies the Petrified Forest, dating back fifteen million years.
Finally, not far from Sigri, one will find the town of Eressos. Eressos has
been the birth place of Sappho and Theoprastos. Its port, Skala Eressos, is
a famous resort with a magnificent beach.

As it can be seen from its classical history, its abundance of poets,
musicians, philosophers and lawgivers, was one of the great cultural centers
of the Greek world. It was second perhaps only to Athens, in its influence
if not in its power. As a place for a holiday, for a rest or for quiet work,
LESVOS is HARD to BETTER.
It is big enough to permit that change of scene so necessary if one is to
avoid "island claustrophobia". It has a further advantage that it is easy
from here to take a day trip or excursion (excurssion) to visit Chios or to
explore the coastline of Turkey.
