History

The island has been populated since the Stone Age and was known for its natural wealth of marble, gold, silver and vineyards. Its wonderful climate and location have made it fair game for invaders and conquerors over the centuries: Persians, Thassians, Athenians, Romans, Turks, Russian, Egyptians, and Bulgarians have all had control over the island at one time or another.

Hints from Harry

The moist climate here breeds mosquitoes very well. Bring insect repellant!
