  • "Very efficient service"

    My wife and I were very impressed with the service provided by Blue Star Ferries on our recent trip between Lesbos and Chios. The ferry left on time - maybe even a couple of minutes early - and everything onboard was very comfortable.

Mytilene Guide

The ancient Greek city of Mytilene is the capital and port of the south east coast of the island of Lesbos, which lies in the north eastern Aegean Sea. The city's origins date back to the 11th century BC and has a number of neo-classical buildings, public and private, on display. Some of these buildings are the buildings of the Lesbos Prefecture, the old City Hall, the Experimental Lyceum and the various mansions and hotels located throughout the town. Dominating the port is the Baroque Church of Saint Therapon on which construction began in the 19th century and was completed in 1935.

The island of Lesbos has a land area of around 1,600 sq. km and has roughly 320 km of coastline, which makes it the third largest Greek island. The narrow Mytilini Strait separates it from the Turkish mainland.

Mytilene has a port with ferries to the nearby islands of Lemnos, Chios and Ayvalik and at times Dikili in Turkey. The port also serves the mainland cities of Piraeus, Athens and Thessaloniki.

Chios Guide

The Greek island of Chios lies in the north east Aegean Sea and is located close to the coast of Turkey and is opposite the Erithrea Peninsular, from which it is separated by the Chios Strait. The island has a land area of around 840 sq. km and a population of roughly 54,000 people. The island's capital city is also called Chios and is home to approximately half of the island's population. Popular visitor attractions on the island include the Byzantine Museum which is located in a former Ottoman mosque and is where you can see a perfect copy of the famous painting "Massacre at Chios" by Delacroix. Also on the island is the famous library named after Adamantios Korais and contains his personal collection of 1,300 historical volumes and the Naval Museum where you can see replicas of sailing ships and steam boats.

Alternatively, take a stroll through the pretty and narrow streets of Kaloplitis and take in the splendour of the former ship owners' mansions that stretch all the way to Tampakika. Here you will find Ioustiniani Palace and the mills that once belonged to the old tanneries.

From Chios, ferry services operate to Piraeus, Thessaloniki, Kavala, Rhodes, Samos, Lemnos, Mytilene, Oinousses, Psara, and Cesme.
