The Greek island of Chios is just a short distance over the sea. There are regular ferris that leave from all over the peninsula for anyone wishing to explore. There are also ferry links to Italy.
Chios is the fifth largest Greek Island - and the birthplace of the poet Homer. It's not particularly popular among tourists, which is surprising as the beaches are good and there's a lot to see on the island.
The food and drink are also good, with many dishes incorporating the local ingredient mastic, a tree extract.
