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.

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
