In Greek mythology the island was said to be named after the son of the legendary Arcadian chief Dardanus and it is fondly referred to as the ‘Flower of the Levant’ – a nickname given by the Venetians who were in possession of the island from 1484 to 1797. April is a great time to visit the island ahead of the busy summer season.
