Molyvos

Mithymna is a town and former municipality on the island of Lesbos, North Aegean, Greece. Your day by day itinerary now includes Skala Eressos Beach as well as Irida Jewels in Art. Do some cultural sightseeing at Molivos Castle and Panagia Glykofilousa. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Potamia Valley and Elleni's Workshop. There's lots more to do: test the waters at Healing Springs of Lesvos: Eftalou, get a new perspective on things with Escape Boat Trips, and trot along with Ippos Horse Riding and Excursions.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Molyvos fast, fun, and easy.

Mytilene

Founded in the 11th century BCE, Mytilene is the capital of the island of Lesbos.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Charamida Beach and Paralia Agios Stefanos. Your inner history buff will appreciate Mytilene Castle and Catholic Church of the Assumption of Virgin Mary. Explore Mytilene's surroundings by going to Agiasos (Panagia Agia Sion & Mount Olympus), Vatera Beach (in Vatera) and DiSa-Travel (in Agios Isidoros). There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Agios Raphael Monastery, contemplate the long history of The Roman Aqueduct, examine the collection at Museum of Byzantine Art, and stop by Olive Wood House.

To find maps, photos, and more tourist information, read Mytilene trip planning website.

Getting from Molyvos to Mytilene by car takes about 1.5 hours. Other options: drive. In August, daily temperatures in Mytilene can reach 38°C, while at night they dip to 27°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 18th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.

Emerald Isle
Still largely unaffected by commercial tourism, Lesbos maintains its leisurely pace of life and offers visitors a tranquil landscape of lush olive groves and age-old fishing settlements. The Ottomans called this island the "Garden of the Empire," valuing its pristine natural scenery and rich cultural heritage. Lesbos once drew philosophers like Aristotle and Epicurus, who ran a renowned philosophical academy on the island. Today Lesbos' coastline attracts hikers, cyclists, and beachgoers, while its unspoiled forested areas draw ardent birdwatchers. Begin your island adventure at Mytilene, a lively port town packed with museums, churches, and traditional taverns.
