What to see in Chios
Don’t miss the Archaeological museum and the Byzantine museum.
Surely the most original is the museum of Mastice, the typical product of Chios.
It was used as a bargaining chip with the Mediterranean populations thanks to its multiple uses and the healing properties known since ancient times.
Among the villages certainly worth a visit is the fortified town of Pyrgi dating back to the medieval period which is architecturally influenced by the two centuries of Genoese domination.
The exterior of the houses have the uniqueness of having been made with the ‘scratch’ technique.
To move from one point to another on the island, the car is the fastest and most comfortable way.
