Athens, the country's capital, is situated 160 miles (257 kilometers) southwest of Lesvos.
Of course, limiting yourself to only one place, no matter how popular, will only ever provide you with a limited view into the broader textures and qualities of a region. So schedule in some time to explore North Aegean Islands' other cities, attractions and landscapes. Examples of places within a relatively short distance of Lesvos are Tavari, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the east, and Eresos-Antissa, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the east.
Grab some transportation and spend half a day in Chios, a transport and retail hub for the area, located some 55 miles (89 kilometers) away from Lesvos. This bigger city has a wide range of visitor attractions, such as Chios Port, Leonidiou Court and Mavra Voila Beach. Chios Public Garden, Daskalopetra Beach and University of the Aegean are some of the other attractions here that should be included on every visitor's list.
Venture back into the past while you are in the North Aegean Islands area. Take a trip to one of the fortresses for which this region is well known. The most rewarding places for travelers to visit when they first arrive in a new place are the ones that offer a window into the local culture. Head to North Aegean Islands' history museums.
If you like spending time with travelers of similar interests, Lesvos has a range of specialized tours such as city walking tours and winery tours.
Everything has to end, but be rest assured, when you have to say "Yiá sou" to Lesvos, you'll still have special memories and keepsakes to take home.Accommodation in Lesvos
