Mytilene (Lesbos) Shore Excursion - This shore trip visits Agiasos, one of the most charming hilltop towns on the island of Lesbos. A stop at Mytilene's Archaeological Museum is also included.

Lesvos is the third largest island in Greece and was once a major cultural center, known for its Philosophical Academy, where Epicurus and Aristotle taught. It was the birthplace of the philosopher Theophrastus, who presided over the Academy in Athens, of the great poet Sappho, of Trepanned, the father of Greek music and of Arion, who influenced the later playwrights Sophocles and Alcaeus.

Departing from the pier you enjoy a scenic drive through the old town of Mytilene admiring in the background the Byzantine Castle. Continue your drive along the Eastern coast of the island towards the monastery of Saint Raphael which stands tall on a slope literally covered with olive trees.

Hidden in a forest ravine beneath Mount Olympus, Agiasos is possibly the most beautiful hill-town on Lesvos. It began life in the 12th century as a dependency of the central monastic church of the Panagia Vrefokratousa which was constructed to enshrine a miraculous icon reputed to have been painted by St. Luke. After your visit to the church you will have free time in Agiassos.

As you head back to the port, you will visit the Archaeological Museum which is famous for its artifacts from Ancient Mithymna.
