Visiting Lemnos


1st AIF

Recommended Posts

I'm heading off with my wife to Lemnos in May. Was wondering if anyone has been there and what tips they can give me?

Any advice on WW1 related things to see apart from the CWGC? Any local characters with WW1 knowledge? Nice places to stay?

Am still wading through google as to the best way to get there from Athens but it seems reasonably service by plane or ferry.

Thanks,

Len

Hi Len - check out our website http://throughtheselines.com.au/research

Hire a car if you can. Visit Mudros and its church. We had a couple of good meals at sunset near the harbour there. Head out to Turks Head, site of many hospitals. Also the Muslim cemetery. Small museum in Portianou. Visit Therma hot springs, climb at least some of the way up the mountain nearby for great views to Mudros harbour. There are lots of photos online, on the IWM and AWM websites - print some and take them with you.

We flew from Athens.

Thanks b3rn. Looks like flying is tops. I checked out your website and great to see the research you have done on the nursing service.
