Chios travel guide

4.3
Beaches · Landmarks · Specialty Museums
Mastic Island
Rich history and scenic landscapes make Chios one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Aegean. Nicknamed the "Mastic Island" because it remains one of the world's major producers and exporters of mastic gum, Chios offers visitors a chance to explore medieval villages and age-old monasteries. Start at the ancient settlement serving as the island's center of shopping, dining, and entertainment. Alternatively, make the southwestern port of Mesta your base for touring a cluster of satellite islands reachable by boat or ferry. The island is nearer to the Turkish coastline than the Greek mainland, and as a result shares much of eastern Turkey's topography of rugged crags and fragrant citrus groves.

Green Island
An island of volcanic mountains and terraced vineyards, Samos lies near the Turkish mainland and serves as a convenient resting point on the route between Athens and Izmir. Rich in history and culture, Samos experienced its golden age as a powerful and wealthy independent state long before Athens expanded its influence as the region's principal urban center. In modern times, the island has become a popular holiday destination, known mostly for its beaches, coastal paths, and ancient sites. The island's top attractions include the World Heritage-listed remains of a vast sanctuary devoted to Hera and a 2,500-year-old aqueduct, regarded as one of the highest achievements of ancient engineering.
