Passengers traveling by ferry to Lesvos, arrive at an island which is also known as Mytilene and is one of the largest and oldest Greek islands!

Sappho and Alcaeus used to sing their famous poems on that island, a heritage that has stayed alive over the centuries to the present day. This is easily recognizable when you pass through the places Eftaliotis, Mirivilis or Venesis which was the residence of the Greek Nobelist Odisseas Elitis.

Tourists traveling to the destination Lesvos find magnificent bays (Jeras and Kallonis), endless sandy beaches, castles, monasteries, churches and a lot more sights worth seeing. An interesting archaeological museum is located in the capital Mytilene as well as a museum of popular art. You will also find an old fortress from the 14th century and a Roman Theatre dating back to the 3rd century BC. Many old villages with architectural buildings worth seeing and even strange natural phenomena (a petrified forest in Sigri and an 18th-century church on top of a cliff) can be visited on the island. Those who leave the island with the ferry from Lesvos will remain with the impression of an island that in its entirety resembles a painting. That is particularly true for the place Molivos.
