Chios, Greece

Chios situated at the east Aegean Sea is the fifth largest of the Greek islands, separated from Turkey by the Chios Strait. It has a resident population of over 50000 inhabitants. It can be reached either by boat from Piraeus or by plane from the Athens airport as well as from several European cities. The capital and main port of the island is the town of Chios, with its center surrounded by a 10th century castle. Next to the town is the Kambos "plain", a large fertile plain with impressive stone mansions and walled orchards. Vrondados and Kardamyla are other important towns. Despite its beauty and several historical sites, Chios is not a mass tourism destination. The people of Chios have been mainly occupied through centuries with shipping.
