Chios is one of the islands of the north-east Aegean, very close to Turkey and opposite the Erithrea peninsula, separated from it by the Chios Canal. The country of Chios extends to 842 square kilometers and has a population of about 54.000 people.
Made from volcanic ground, the island of Chios emerges in the northern waters of the Aegean Sea. While the northern part is mainly covered with mountains and barren lands, the southern part is colored by fruits, almonds, olives, vines and uncountable mastic trees. These are the most characteristic trees of the island, a bush from whose fruits the Chian exclusively produce worldwide know products such as the mastic gum and a unique liquor that is served as an appetizer.

Upon arrival in Chios, check-in at your hotel.
The main city, also called Chios, is built in a narrow plain with low hills opposite to the Turkish coast, in the same place where the ancient city was found. Today, it is a commercially active and lively city where yet the old flavors can still be noticed since big parts of the Genoese fortress with houses of the Ottoman period are still standing. The Byzantine fortress (10th century A.D.) has been renovated and adapted to their needs by the various consecutive conquerors of the island. The main entrance and the western wall show Occidental signs and blazons, some parts of the 60 meters wide ditch surrounding the fortress are still in their original shape. It was built in the Byzantine period and was then used as the administrative center of the island. It enjoyed a great development during the Genovese governance. It was an example of a Renaissance-type city. Its walls resisted numerous attacks from Genoese, Venetians and Turks. You will also visit the "Justiniani" Museum and other interesting Byzantine monuments such as the Saint George Church.
