Traveling in 2022: Thasos island

Thasos is a mountainous island in the Thracian Sea, east of Greece, 8 km from mainland Thrace.
Its area: 398 km2
Its population: 13,800 inhabitants
The nature of Thasos is very varied due to the vast plains of the northeast and the mountains that dominate the rest of the island (summit of Mount Ypsario 1203 meters), with a temperate Mediterranean climate.
Thasos is famous for its mineral wealth (gold, copper, iron, marble..), for its olive trees and vines, for its honey, for its ancient ruins (Greeks, Romans, Slavs, Byzantines..), and by its fantastic beaches.
