To reach the ancient city of Lissos we walked from Sougia on the well marked trail up the Lissos gorge and over the hill and down a rough zig-zag path to Lissos. This walk of one and a half hours should not be underestimated. The descent in to the Lisos plain is quite tough especially in the heat. At first sight Lissos looks like a pile of rocks but there is spectacular history here of a flourishing city from the 3rd century BC. Give yourself time to recover from the walk before paying attention to the ruins. The first building you come to is the temple with a Roman mosaic, further down near the harbour is the chapel. Whole area is atmospheric and hard to believe once an important city. After a cool swim we waited for our pre-ordered water taxi - Captain George (plenty of adverts for him in Sougia) - who arrived promptly to whisk us away.
