This typical greek village was abandoned in the 1970's due to shortage of water. It is now used at night as a discotheque with free bus service from the main village. Really cool!

Utterly fascinating, and it is quite a big village, but you need to be able to walk well and need more than sandals. You must take water. There is evidence that some of the broken down stone cottages are being revived. You can find shade in some buildings to rest and take lunch.

A short hike uphill from Livadia (20 - 40 min) is the deserted village Mikro Chorio, now inhabited by shy goats and birds. It is well wort a visit and a proper look around, just be careful with the lose stones. At night there is a bar that I unfortunately didn't have the energy to visit. A mini bus takes... More

fascinating history, which was complemented by the amazing story from the owner of the superb Mediterranean delights restaurant. Stelios and Effie (father and daughter team) mentioned Stelios used to live in the village as a child. His first 'life' memory was as a three year old, being given a tin of sweets by a Brittish soldier in 1944 in the... More

walking to the church, at 14th August, with all the abandoned village lighted and seeing the stars is one of my best summer memories. Visiting mikro horio is a must see at tilos.

A small and pretty village with steep winding alleys and narrow streets. There are 2 or 3 tavernas but I would recommend walking to the coast at Eristos and eating the home cooking at Eristos Beach Hotel. Really good value and very tasty. The church has a beautiful churchyard. It is a place to go if you enjoy walking. There... More

A unique bar that has preserved the abandoned village and offers a fantastic and mystical scenery where you can have your drink and enjoy a great view of the traditional village. They really deserve my congratulations. PS. Don't forget there is a free bus to the bar and back !!

This deserted village is reached by a stiff climb up from the main road where the bus driver drops you on request. At first you reach heaps of stones, tumbledown buildings, and think this is it, but when the residents left they took with them their doors and windows and any stones that could be used rebuilding their new houses...
