Having caught the Ferry from Samothraki to Limnos, We arrived at Myrina, the capitol and ferry-port of Limnos just before midnight. The ferry trip had taken just under four hours from Samothraki. So the first task was to find some sort of accommodation for the night, this proved somewhat difficult as by the time we had walked around from the port into the town centre it was well after midnight and as it still wasn't full season a lot of places were either closed up for the night or just closed !!!
We did find a small hotel, not very clean and very noisy but it did us for the night -- Just !!!
So the next day, after a Poor nights sleep we decided to move on and find somewhere " Nice " to stay for our remaining two nights !! As we were still somewhat overloaded we thought that the best option we had was to hire a car out for the duration of our stay on the Island, apart from it giving us the best chance of touring the Island and finding better accommodation it also made the trip to the airport on our last evening nice and simple as we were able to leave the car there !!
So we spent the Day touring the Island, checking out the Ancient sites and having a good Look around the Island, we eventually opted to stay at Agios Giannis, and a Really Beautiful place that was too !!!!
We spent the next two nights staying at Agios Giannis and toured the Island from here. Limnos is blessed with miles of deserted sandy beaches, especially south of Moudros, just pick a dirt road and see where it takes you !! The Ancient Sites are well worth a visit and the Natural scenery of the Island is really pretty !!
- Pros:A Beautiful Island, Great Beaches and Ancient Sites and although there is some mass tourism the island isn't exactly overrun with tourists !!!
- Cons:Not a lot of con's that I can think of ???
- In a nutshell:Not Nearly as stunning as Samothraki but never-the-less this Island has a charm all of its own !!! Well Worth a Visit !!!
Difficult to say exactly what my " Favourite " was !!?? The Ancient sites were Fantastic -- The Deserted beaches were... more travel advice
The Best way to Tour Limnos is to hire your own transportation, We hired a car from " Holiday Car rentals " and found... more travel advice
