Chios Guide

The Greek island of Chios is the 5th largest Greek island in the Aegean Sea and is located around 7 km off the Anatolian coast and is separated from Turkey by the Chios Strait. Chios Town was constructed around the old harbour and medieval castle, which were constructed under Venetian and Ottoman rule. Some remains have been found which date back to 2,000 BC. Popular attractions on the island include the Chios Byzantine Museum, the Archaeological Museum of Chios, its medieval villages and the 11th century monastery of Nea Moni which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The island is mainly mountainous although there are a few valleys to be found in the south and east parts of the island. Overlooking the northern part of the island is Mount Pelineo with its highest peak, Profitis Helias, at 1,297 meters above sea level. The island has a typical Mediterranean climate with mild winters and warm, dry, summers and is known for its picturesque landscape.

Chios, and the other islands in the East Aegean, are generally connected to the ports of Piraeus and Rafina, the Cycladic islands including Syros, Tinos, Mykonos and Andros and also to the island of Rhodes.

Syros Guide

The Greek island of Syros is one of the Cyclades group of islands and is unusual in that the island's architecture is more medieval rather than the more typical Cycladic. The island's capital is Ermoupolis and has some fine examples of Venetian mansions to see. In the Vaporia quarter of the capital visitors will find some lovely large churches and impressive neoclassical buildings, such as the Town Hall and Apollo Theatre in the central square. Also popular with visitors are the island's beaches which are well equipped for tourists and have a good range of facilities.

The island can trace its history back to the 3rd millennium BC where signs of inhabitation have been found in the Halandriani and Kastri parts of the island. Artefacts found indicate that there was some kind of metal workshop on the island which possibly had a trading relationship with Asia Minor. The Samians occupied the island in the 6th century BC and is when many of the island's inhabitants moved to the island. At that time, the important physician and philosopher Pherecydis was born in Syros and some years later he went to Samos and became the teacher of Pythagoras.
