The third largest island in Greece, Lesvos, is also one of the least explored islands by global tourists. Apart from an interesting collection of museums, the glorious fortress of Myteline, millions of olive trees, picturesque villages with old-stone houses, and an unforgettable culinary experience, the island has a diverse landscape to explore. The towns of Molyvos and Ayiassos are architectural marvels you wouldn’t want to miss. The island is a numero uno site for birdwatching, with salt marshes of the Gulf of Kalloni being a pilgrimage for birdwatchers. It is a must-visit place for the literati and art-lovers, as Lesvos is the birthplace of legendary poets like Sappho, Aesop, and Odysseus Elytis and artists like Theriade and Theophilos.
Best time to visit: March to May is the most pleasant period to tour Lesvos, with April being the perfect time for birdwatchers.
