Lesbos

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.

Where to stay in Lesbos

Lesbos offers lodgings suited to every taste and budget, but its most popular rooms remain concentrated in and around the towns of Mytilene and Molyvos. Hotels range from small and economical, which cater to budget-conscious travelers, to four and five-star establishments offering amenities like Turkish baths and modern fitness facilities. For something less formal and considerably less expensive, book a room at a family-run guesthouse, where you can have your own fully equipped cooking area and private outdoor space.
