Great views

The views from the top are amazing - there is nothing as blue as the Aegean Sea - you can't really imagine how spectacular it is until you see if from here. However, unless you... read more

The views from the top are amazing - there is nothing as blue as the Aegean Sea - you can't really imagine how spectacular it is until you see if from here. However, unless you are physically incredibly superfit and can almost sprint to the top, you'll have to forgo something else amongst the other big ticket item ruins on... More

Long way up and very windy, but you can see for miles once up there! Don't think any of the tour group will go up here, so go solo if you're thinking about it. Great views all the way back to Mykonos. If you have a good zoom lens you can get some great shots of Delos from above as... More

We walked to the top of Mount Kynthos when we visited Delos and it was a great thing to do. The walk is fairly hardwork and I would encourage people to talk drinks, snacks as there is nothing around. However, when you reach the top the views are incredible. We were lucky enough to have the whole area to ourselves... More

After our tour, we debated going to the museum and skipping the hike to Mount Kynthos to catch the boat back- absolutely glad we did the hike! It's a fairly easy hike, you definitely want to wear comfortable shoes. We took our snacks that we bought from the store next to the museum and ate baklava on top of Mount... More

There is a lot to learn on this little island. My tourist guide was pleasant and helpful. I recommend the half day trip from Mykonos, but bring sunscreen, there is little to no shady spots.

Climb the hill for some of the best views over Delos and the surrounding islands. At the top, are numerous piles of stones, where people have left prayers to the gods Apollo and Artemis. On the way down don't miss some of the best mosaics in the mansions located along the path to the left.

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.
