The Greek island of Limnos, sometimes called Lemnos, is the 8th largest island in Greece and lies in the Aegean Sea. The island's main towns are Myrina on the island's west coast and Moudros on the east coast, on the shores of a large bay in the middle of the island. Myrina is the island's capital and port and is characterised by its pretty, traditional, paved alleys, its old stone mansions, its coastal promenade and its Byzantine Castle which overlooks the town. The castle is located on a steep, rocky, peninsular on a hillside where visitors can often see small deer grazing. The island has many things to do and see including the Petrified Forest near the town of Moudros where it is possible to see fossilised tree trunks, leaves, fruit and palm tree roots that are around 20 million years old. Also worth visiting is the prehistoric settlement of Poliochni which is thought to be the oldest Neolithic city in Europe. There is a rectangular building there that has a double row of stepped seats that resembles a parliamentary architectural structure. It is because of this that it is thought to be the oldest parliament discovered in the world.
There are ferry connections from Myrina to the islands of Agios Efstratios, Lesvos and Samothrace (in the summertime only) and with the mainland to the ports of Piraeus and Lávrio (Athens area) Thessaloniki and Kavála.
The Greek island of Mykonos is one of the Cyclades group of islands and is famous for its unique glamour and typical Greek personality. The island's capital is Mykonos Town, or Hora, and is the hub of the island's tourist industry. Exploring the town, visitors will find its charming old port ferry quay, the bustling Taxi Square, many tavernas located along the shoreline, museums, expensive shops and typical Greek whitewashed houses, especially in the Little Venice quarter. Despite all that Mykonos Town has to offer, perhaps the island's biggest draw for tourists are its many beaches, with golden sand that are generally easy to reach. However, during the peak summer holiday season the beaches can become very busy and generally aren't large enough to provide any sort of seclusion.
There are two ports on the island. The old Mykonos Harbour is where all passenger ferries arrive and the New Port of Tourlos which is mostly used by cruise ships. Ferries from Mykonos depart to Piraeus and Rafina on the Greek mainland and to the other Cyclades islands, the Dodecanese islands and to Crete. Conventional and high speed ferries operate to and from the island.
