Most Viewed Favorites in Prefecture of Lesvos

  • Good food and relaxation

    by NicoGrg Written Jun 14, 2007

    Favorite thing: I have stayed several times in the beautiful ancient town of Molyvos, a small town with a historic Byzantine castle nestled on top of a hill with winding streets shaded by ancient vines leading down to bay with pebbled beaches. The houses are all of traditional build and modern times seem to have forgotten some of this old town. A stroll down to the picturesque harbour to enjoy some wonderful food at the Seahorse restaurant whilst watching the fishermen bring in their evening catch or lunch in one of the rooftop restaurants are a must.

    Fondest memory: Lesvos is a Greek holiday resort that although enjoys it's fair share of tourist has not succumb to the cheap drink, British food and party hard culture that many others have over the past few years. A car journey can take you to a desserted beach or medicinal hot springs, this is definitely the place to come for a laid back Greek holiday. There are many things to miss about Lesvos with relaxation, Greek culture and good food to name but a few, there is also welcome shortfall of noisy tourists.

    local products of Mytilene

    by paragianna75 Updated Mar 13, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Dont forget to taste the traditional Mytilene products during your visit to the island.
    -ouzo first of all.Mytilene produces the best greek ouzo, most of the ouzo labels are coming from the island (mini, varvagiani, plomari etc)
    -traditional cheese (ladotiri), it is delicious especially as saganaki (fried cheese)
    -anchovies, there is a special celebration in Kalloni about that fish
    -oil, Mytilene oil is very famous not only in Greece for its quality (it has a strong taste)
    -the flowers of the vegetable marrows (kolokitholoulouda), they are delicious and local people used to use them often in their nutrition (try them fried with cheese)
    -sea food especially scallops(chtenia), cockles(kydonia), barnacles(petalides)
    -preserves, they use to make sweets from all the fruits and vegetables (tomato sweet is the best!)
