General Description

This is a special day tour to discover the fantastic Island of Milos with the special geological landscape and the natural secrets. It is ideal for people who do not wish to rent a car or use the public transport.

Our first stop is the Cave of Papafragas. This complex of sea caves was formed by volcanic activity and is divided by a small ravine. Many people actually snorkel in the turquoise waters at the bottom of the ravine and explore the caves. We will stop for a while to see this interesting spot and we will also talk about the close archaeological site of Phylakopi, our next stop.

Ancient Phylakopi developed as a settlement from the Neolithic Period (9,000 to 4,000 BC) until about 1,000 BC. British archaeologists excavated the site during the 1890s and actually discovered tools from obsidian, which is a volcanic glass similar to granite. These tools and other findings are today hosted in the Archaeological Museum of Milos in Plaka. From Papafragas we can see the remains of the ancient city walls, although the tour does not include visit to the actual archaeological site.

After our stop in Papafragas, we drive along the northern side of Milos and arrive in Sarakiniko, probably the most photographed spot of Milos! This fantastic place with the pure white stone sculpted by volcanic eruptions looks like landing on the moon. Beneath the white rocks are impressive sea caves!

We will continue the beautiful road and arrive in Plaka, the capital town of Milos. Walking through the paved village, we will discover a traditional place of Cycladic architecture, stunning seaside views, and pastries with delicious homemade sweets. Have some free time to explore the buildings, structures, and the view that Panagia Korfiatissa offers over the Aegean Sea! The tour will continue toward Tripiti and its mesmerizing Christian catacombs, concluding at the marble-built Ancient Roman Theater.
