Chios in the North Aegean, close to Turkey, is popular with Greek tourists and less so with foreign tourists and for this reason you can get a real taste of Greek life on this island. Chios is a beautiful island of fine beaches, pretty villages and stunning scenery. It is the fifth largest of the Greek islands so you'll have plenty of options in terms of different beaches, hotels, and places to eat and drink.
The name of the island possibly comes from the Greek word for snow: chioni, since the island's patron god Poseidon was born under snowfall. Traditionally it was a rich island due to the production of Mastic gum (which it still makes) and wine. As a consequence the architecture of the island with large stunning colourful houses reflects this rich history of trade.
Greece is a popular tourist destination that boasts beautiful beaches, picturesque traditional villages, stunning landscapes and numerous sites of historical and archaeological interest.
Visit the Acropolis of Athens, the Minoan Palace of Knossos in Crete or the ancient monasteries of Meteora. Experience true cosmopolitan life in Athens or Thessaloniki, or explore the forests and coastal walks of one of the many Greek islands.
There are more beautiful and historic sites in Greece than it is possible to list. Special mention should of course be given to the Parthenon, the largest temple in Athens which is known the world over for its columns. Entry to here, and many other historic sites in Greece, is free to students of EU universities.
