Hints from Harry

Be careful driving on the winding roads and make sure you have insurance! For me this island is a bit big unless you are with friends who know it and are willing to show you around. You won't necessarily get that intimate island feel that you would on a smaller island. Lesvos is for those with more time to spend.  See more photos of Lesvos.
