Amazing! We went when there was nobody there early in the day, and also up on the free shuttle in the evening. Both are worth doing.

Mikro Chorio is a village which was left by its habitants some 50 or more years ago. Now it's in ruins but worth of seeing. Very much so. The church of Mikro Chorio is still well kept and there are now - at the moment - 4 buildings remade. But Mikro Chorio doesn't make you sad, even if you see... More

Eerie place but well worth the short walk. Gives a good impression of the hard life that Greek islanders endured until relatively recently. Fot the more trendy among us--there is a disco under the stars with free transport every night!

Not too much going on but museum worth a look. Sleepy old town with great views from the church. the local bus is the best way of seeing this as the bus will travel to all the places you can easily get to as there are only about 12 miles of road.

If you like poking around in ruins, this is the place to go. Go early in day or late afternoon. Beautiful churches. Worth the trip.

Impressive scenery of a deserted and ruined village. Free transportation every night, in hope to attract customers for the bar located there, which though has nothing special to offer (except the view of course)

Mikro Horio is a lovely place to see in the daylight or night time! It has a lot of meaning to it. My sister and i particularly liked it at night time when we enjoyed getting a free mini bus from the "centre" to the bar. It has a good range of songs that are played through the duration of... More

We didn't know what to expect. It was delightful and charming. We found a restaurant that looked like someone's kitchen and had the best Greek salad we've ever had with a spectacular view of valley below.

Walking around the island of Tilos one must visit Mikro Chorio (with walking distance to the beach Lethra - beautiful) and also the abandoned village of Ghera, The walk to Ghera is breathtaking and we also thought Ghera was a more exciting sight with spectacular beaches to "climb"/walk down to!

Magic scenic of a ghost-village, fantastic view and music! The only thing we disliked was high prices for the drinks.
