Mytilene

Founded in the 11th century BCE, Mytilene is the capital of the island of Lesbos.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Olive Press Museum Vrana and Theriade Library and Museum of Modern Art. Get some historical perspective at The Roman Aqueduct and The Yeni Tzami (Mosque). You'll find plenty of places to visit near Mytilene: Agiasos (Ceramic Workshop Hatzigiannis Dimitris, Panagia Agia Sion, &more), Barbayannis Ouzo Museum (in Plomari) and DiSa-Travel (in Agios Isidoros). There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Agios Ermogenis Beach, contemplate the waterfront views at Pessa Springs, pause for some serene contemplation at Catholic Church of the Assumption of Virgin Mary, and examine the collection at Museum of Byzantine Art.

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.
