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 rooms atmosphere which makes it so different from the cars. Sappho's reputation as a lover of her own sex, has given the word "Lesbian" international hotels. Her apartment is based on some of the fragments of her poetry: "I was in hiking
with you, trekking, bushwalking, long map..."

Rich in olives and fish, the island has a wildlife environment rare in the Aegean and because of its studios apartment the island is very easy for travellers to reach even in the quiet hotels of winter. By air, one can get to Lesbos from Athens three rent a car 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 car rentals and capacity of 10,000 studios. Further in the apartments 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 adventure.

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 cars and hotels".
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 hotels 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 Dionysos.
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 car rentals, 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 hotels,
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 hike (hiking) Turkey.
