The turn off for the archaelogical site on Sifnos is located on the road to Vathy. The road is quite steep but paved all the way and is signposted. The site itself was a Mycenean fortress and there is a museum there also which has displays of recovered coinage and pottery from both the classical and Mycenean Era. At the... More

Although there is a car park nearby, we parked our scooter on the road and walked up the steep hill to Aghios Andreas. The church is beautiful and very peaceful inside even though when I was there the wind was howling around the building. Great views across sifnos. The archaeological site- acropolis is also very interesting.

Awarded in 2012 by the "Europa Nostra" organization as a prototype of an excellent promotion of an ancient acropolis, this location also offers a thrilling view of most of this historical Cycladic island. The dig revealed a 12th century b.C. Mycenaean wall girding the foundations of an archaic settlement where a variety of buildings (temples, houses, shops and water works)... More

This site is a little difficult to find. It's at the top of a large hill, but you don't need to hike to get there. There is a paved road that allows you to drive your car most of the way up; then there's just a very short, but steep, walk to the actually site. There's a small museum that's... More

The ruins are very well preserved and you'll have a wonderfull view from the top of the hill. The climb is an easy one (from the car parking, there is a longer path but we did't used it) thou I would not advise a walk during the hottest hours of the day. The small museum has some interesting pieces and... More

You can get there on foot by climbing up the hill (an easy 30 min walk from the main road to Vathy) or drive all the way up to the top! I prefer to walk up the hill and enjoy the smell of sage and thyme as I go up! (and the views over the Sifnos, Paros and the other... More
