The youthful city of Mytilene has given a lively burst of energy to the island due to the well established University of the Aegean, located in the main city/port of the island.  The vibrant cafe’s and outdoor night clubs allow for the youthfulness inside us all to choose between the chilled Mediterranean beats to the Live Traditional village celebrations “Paniyiri” throughout the calendar year.

Today, the University of the Aegean, located in Mytilene, has given the city a youthful boost. Cafes are full of students at all hours of the day, and the nightlife has blossomed.  International bird-watchers flock to Lesvos to see the over 279 species of birds that have been recorded here.  The petrified forest on the island is one of the few in the world through Pleistocene epochs of fossil remains dating from 5.5 million years ago and villages dating back to the Bronze Age.


With invasions and occupations from the ancient Romans, Byzantines, Venetians, Genoese, and Turks, the island provides the traveler through a journey of authentic Greek culture, archaeology, history, religion, and paleontology.
