Delos archaeological site is definitely the highlight and a must see for any Cycladic visitor, which is believed to have been the ancient center of Cycladic group of islands which got their name because of their circular position (cycle = “kyklos” in Greek) around ancient Delos.  Being a part of the World’s Cultural Heritage and protected by UNESCO, you should not miss a chance to take the boat tour from Mykonos to mythical Delos, the birthplace of the God Apollo and the Goddess Artemis, and let its ancient ruins travel you back into the depths of time.

Delos is a small uninhabited island just a few nautical miles from Mykonos (30 min trip approximately per way). During the Ancient times it was considered the most important Hellenic sanctuary. The island has significant history tracing back to the 3rd millennium BC. Excavations have brought rich archaeological finds to light and are continued to be carried out by the French School of Archaeology.

In this 3 – 4 hour tour you will begin from Mykonos Island and sail to Delos.  An experienced tour guide will walk you around the island’s important ruins, spread all over the islet, and give you key insights to Delos’ glorious history. On this historical walk you will witness various Doric temples, markets, an amphitheater, houses with mosaics and the iconic Terrace of the Lions statues, among other significant sites. You can optionally have a refreshment or snack at the only café available, as the island is uninhabited and closed for public after sundown.

This tour is organized (group) with minimum number of participants 8, and is offered in English (Daily at 10:00 and 17:00), French (Friday at 10:00), Italian or Spanish (Tuesday at 10:00).
