Lesbos

Castles · Beaches · Landmarks
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. Plan my trip to Greece with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.
