TOUR DESCRIPTION
 

Mykonos Shore Excursion

This Mykonos shore trip visits the small uninhabited island of Delos. According to mythology it was the birthplace of Apollo, the god of music, light and beauty. Today the island is one of the most respected and revered sanctuaries of antiquity.

After meeting your private guide you transfer to the ferry port in the town of Mykonos where you'll board the local kaiki (ferries) to Delos. Located virtually at the center of the Cyclades island group, Delos developed into one of the most important trading centers of the Mediterranean. It was once the religious center of the entire Aegean. Pilgrims from all over the known world came to pay their respect to the God, bringing gifts and offerings, and making the island one of the most important sanctuary islands of the ancient world.

In the early 19th century excavations uncovered ruins of a long dead city. Beautiful artifacts such as the Naxos marble lions and splendid mosaic floors are visible amid the ruins and inside the small museum. Rising above the ruins of the ancient city is Mount Kynthos. Here the earliest traces of habitation were discovered, dating back to the 3rd century B.C.

After your walking tour of Delos you return to the harbor in Mykonos where your tour ends and you can enjoy free time in the town of Mykonos.

Please Note: It is about a 20 minute walk through the town and along the harbor to return to the pier where large cruise ships dock. Most cruise lines offer free shuttles from the town back to the ship.

Mobility: NO wheelchairs
