Lesvos is situated north of Chios and south-east of Limnos.There are a lot to see and do here; spectacular mountain views, secluded and popular beaches, the petrified forest of Sigri and olive groves to walk through , producing the best olive oil in Greece. Lesvos is famous for its ouzo, sardines, Ladotyri (sheep’s milk cheese kept in olive oil). You could easily spend two weeks taking in the sights and still feel as though there’s so much more to see.
