You find this small mountain on the island of Delos, the World Heritage archaeological site. It has a small path of stepping stones up the side of the mountain. Along the way you can always look back over the island/site of Delos. Beautiful views!! A small altar is at the top of the mountain. Does not take too long. Is... More

Definitely a worth to climb up (113 meter above the sea level). Quite easy scenic but steep walk/climb max. 15 minutes. The summit offer spending view of surrounding islands. Be advice: the top is windy so watch out for your cap as it can fly away very easily.

The island if Delos was amazing.Originally I was not going to go but changed my mind and am very glad that I did.Awesome-the history.This place used to be bigger than Athens. There are still coloured mosaic floors and some of the homes were 2 stories high and are still partially standing. Closing your eyes and imagining you are in the... More

The top two things on the island have to be the museum and the mosaics. From this mountain (hill really -- 177 ft above sea level by my altimeter) Zeus watched as Leto gave birth to their children, the goddess Artemis and the god Apollo. Great view of Delos.

The views from the top are spectacular, both of the archaeological site below, as well as the surrounding islands. This is a must see, do not miss it. The climb up is mainly on stairs, but some parts of it involve climbing a bit on rocks, but even a person that is not fit can do it. It is a... More

If you visit Delos, make sure you make some time to climb to the top of Mount Kynthos. It is a fairly sort & easy hike, but watch your step as some of the stones are a little loose. The view from the top is very rewarding - a birds eye view of the ruins as well as the edge... More

If you are on Delos, make the climb. So worth it. Take it slow and drink plenty of water and then once up there spend some time to relax and get your breath back and then have it taken away again by the sight from up there. Many of the other significant archeological sites are on the way down toward... More

You can see the periphery of the island from the point but don't go here if your legs are not working as the climb is steep and the rocks unforgiving.

My son and I went up while visiting Delos during a cruise (we run away from our group, the tour was getting boring). It is definitely worth doing, offering a great view from up there (see the picture). It is a fairly sort hike, but watch your step. And yes, it is very windy up there.

From the ground at DELOS if you look up at this site it is incredibly impressive as to what has been built on the hill and how well it has been preserved. The flight of stairs beckons you to visit more closely if you have the time and all should partake of that invitation if you can.
