Itinerary

Our vehicle and escort will pick up you at approx. 09:00 from your hotel or your cruise ship and transfer you to the new port of Mykonos where you will meet your tour guide and sail to Delos island on our small traditional boats for a visit of the most important ancient civilization archaeological site of the Eastern Mediterranean.

After approx. 35-40' we arrive at the legendary island and at this point, you dissembark for a 2 hour 15 minute visit on this beautiful ‘UNESCO world heritage’ landmark. Please note that there is a chance that you will dissembark with small tenders, depending on traffic and various conditions. Once on the island your tour guide will take you through the entire ancient city with its market places, the public squares, the Temple of Apollo, the sanctuary of Artemis, the old city & the amphitheater and walk down the celebrated Lion Street. You will also visit the museum of Delos and admire the Archaic, Classical, Hellenistic and Roman Sculptures, a collection of vessels from all the periods as well as small items used in the every day life of the inhabitants. Researches of the ancient stones found on the grounds indicate that Delos has been inhabited since the 3rd millennium BC. At the end of your tour and before you board the small traditional boat to return back to Mykonos you can take a break and enjoy a refreshment at the café next to the Museum. For those who will not join us for our supplementary options, transportation service will be provided back to your hotel or to a location of your choice on the island.

Not much left

Bring a hat and sunscreen. Not much is left and it can be a little hard to make out what was where. I suspect the guide makes all the difference. Ours was okay, but not great. Still worth the time and the trip. You should...More
