Delos Island Tour Itinerary
We'll meet at the port in Mykonos town at 10 am. Then we'll set sail aboard a ferry heading west. After cruising over the Aegean Sea for approximately 40 minutes, we'll disembark on the island of Delos.
The tour will begin around one of Greece's most significant historical, archaeological and mythological enclaves, heading over to the Archaeological Site of Delos on foot.
Following the explanations of your guide, you'll explore the ancient theatre of Delos and its surroundings, an area that UNESCO has designated a World Heritage Site for its historical value. We'll explore the former houses of Delian, Dionysus, and Cleopatra.
Then we'll climb the hill to see the old Delos theatre. You'll learn about the shows staged in this venue, which dates back to the third century BC, and which once sat up to 5000 people.
The tour will continue to the Apollo Temple to see the famous Delos lions, a terrace of marble sculptures dedicated to the god Apollo. The intimidating collection of feline statues was once much larger, but several were stolen by one of the Mediterranean empires over the course of history. Can you guess which? The answer might surprise you...
After exploring more of the island's fascinating remains, like the House of the Dolphins and the Doric Temple of Isis.
