Chios is the fifth largest of the Greek Islands, situated in the Aegean Sea, 7 kilometres off the Anatolian coast. The island is seperated from Turkey by the Chios Strait. Chios is notable for its exports of mastic gum and its nickname is The mastic island. Tourist attractions include its medieval villages and the 11th century monastery of Nea Moni, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Administatively, the island forms a seperate munipicipality within the Chios regional unit, which is part of the North Aegean region. The principal town of the island and seat of the munipicipality is Chios Town. Locals refer to Chios town as "Chora" ("Χώρα" literally means land or country, but usually refers to the capital or a settlement at the highest point of a Greek island) Known as "Ophioussa" (Οφιούσσα, "snake island") and "Pityoussa" ( "pine-tree island") in antiquity, during the later Middle Ages the island was ruled by a number of non-Greek powers and was known as Scio (Genoese), Ohio (Italion) and Sakız (Ottoman - Turkish).
