Home to countless treasures of Antiquity, Delos is one of the most important historical sites in Greece. Discover its incredible legacy on this excursion from Mykonos.
Delos Island Tour Itinerary
Having met at the port in Mykonos town, you'll set sail aboard a ferry heading west. After cruising over the Aegean Sea for approximately 40 minutes, you'll disembark on the island of Delos.
On dry land, you'll begin your tour of one of Greece's most significant historical, archaeological and mythological enclaves, heading over to the Museum and Archaeological Site of Delos on foot.
Following the explanations of your English-speaking 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. Learn about the shows that were put on in this venue, which dates back to the third century BC, and which once sat up to 5000 people.
Your guided tour of the Delos Archaeological Site will also take you to visit 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, you'll put the finishing touch on your tour with a visit to the Delos Archaeological Museum. Amongst other highlights, the museum has a large collection of well-preserved mosaics dating from Antiquity.
At the end of your guided tour of this unmissable archaeological treasure, you'll take the return ferry to Mykonos town, where you'll arrive around 1:30 pm.
