Tour to Delos and Mykonos
Walk the sacred island of Delos and admire one of the most important archaeological sites in Greece. In the ancient times, Delos was the sacred island of god Apollo. The myth says that Leto, the mother of Apollo, gave birth to him on this island that suddenly emerged from the sea. In fact, the name Delos means that which emerged. An island with a history of 3,000 years, Delos was the most important religious centre in the antiquity. The island was not inhabited but it was frequently visited by pilgrims who were coming here to pay their respects and give their gifts to god Apollo. Gradually the island also became a political centre and gave its name to the Delian League, an alliance of ancient towns with Athens as leader.
During your visit on the island, you can see the temple of Apollo, the famous Lions of Delos, the ancient theatre, the temple of Leto and many other monuments. Do not also miss the Archaeological Museum of Delos with all the findings from excavations on the island. The island of Delos is a very impressive place and is described as an open archaeological museum.
After Delos, we head to Mykonos, one of the most famous tourist destinations in the world. Have few hours free to walk around the narrow streets of Mykonos Town, have a relaxing coffee in Little Venice, see the view from the Windmills and maybe have a quick swim. In the afternoon, we return to Naxos.
