The island of Lemnos is a beautiful gem in the Aegean Sea, with a rich history and beautiful beaches. There are many different sites that can be visited and there will be different expeditions such as bus tours and hiking tours that can be utilized.

Lemnos

Lemnos is a beautiful island in the Aegean sea.  It is also the location of the University of the Aegean - Lemnos which is the co-host and location of the 30th international conference. This specific campus is home to the Department of Food Science and Nutrition. It boasts a collection of gorgeous beaches and sites that are rich in local history. The island of Lemnos is most well known in mythology as the site of Hepheastus’ landing after being thrown off of Mount Olympus and was nursed back to health. The village of Myrina has many hotels within walking distance of the university and is reachable by ferry directly to its port or by transport from Lemnos’ International Airport.

Places to visit:

    A beautiful church at the top of a hill overlooks the entire city of Myrina.
  2. Kastro van Myrina : Castle entrance is located at the end of the pier in Myrina (15 min drive ~ 5.2 km)
    This is a byzantine era castle that was established in 1186 AD by Emporer Komnenos. This castle was later on used by the ottoman Turks which can be seen by the remnants of a mosque that was built to accommodate the different rules
  3. Ancient Poliochni 30km outside of Myrina (35 min drive)
