Molyvos, also called Mithymna, is the capital of the island of Lesbos. With a rich history, Lesbos offers visitors plenty of things to see and do, but the crown jewel is certainly Molyvos. This picturesque town, with its brown stone houses built amphitheatrically on a hillside, has a pretty harbor lined with colorful fishing boats. Cafés, restaurants and small shops sit beside private homes along the meandering streets.
Climb up to the Byzantine castle after lunch and enjoy breathtaking views over the bay. After dusk, head along the beach for a drink at one (or more) of the many clubs.
