Many tourists associate the island of Lesbos with the confrontation of conservative visions and daring ideas of the young poetess Sappho. Herewith, only a few people know that the name of “Mytilene” (by the name of the administrative center of the island) was made up by local inhabitants. It has to do with the fact that the residents do not wish their island to be associated with the name of Sappho only. At present, Lesbos is a fast-growing island that is annually visited by thousands of tourists.

Lesbos is the third largest island in Greece and one of the most popular holiday destinations among tourists. The island provides facilities for entertainment, relaxation, and going sightseeing. The city of Mytilene is an administrative center of the island. It was established in the best traditions of the Byzantine culture. Here, you can find Mytilene Port and the airport. The airfield lies 8 kilometers from the capital of the island. Every day, it welcomes flights from Athens and other Greek islands. In the summer, Mytilene Airport also caters to the needs of charter flights, coming from abroad.
The port provides a ferry link to the mainland and other islands. The ferries and cruise liners, coming from Turkey, moor by its docks.
