Tour to Delos and Mykonos from Naxos
Visit the sacred island of Delos, one of the most important archaeological sites in Greece.
In the ancient times, Delos was the sacred island of god Apollo. According to the myth, 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 visiting the Archaeological Museum of Delos, which displays various findings that were excavated on this island. The island of Delos is a very impressive place and is actually an open archaeological museum.
After Delos, we head to Mykonos, one of the most cosmopolitan tourist destinations in the world. You will have some hours spare for exploring the narrow streets of Mykonos Town, have a coffee in Little Venice, see the splendid view from the windmills or even have a quick swim. In the afternoon, we return Naxos.
