The Island of Delos: A UNESCO Partner Tour


Approximately 4 hours
Considerable Walking  Tour Manager's Choice 
UNESCO Tour

UNESCO World Heritage Site

Delos was inscribed in 1990. According to Greek mythology, Apollo was born on this tiny island in the Cyclades. Apollo's sanctuary attracted pilgrims from all over Greece and Delos was a prosperous trading port. The island bears traces of the succeeding civilizations in the Aegean world, from the 3rd millennium BC to the paleo-Christian era. The archaeological site is exceptionally extensive and rich.

Board a local ferry from the tender pier in Mykonos and cross to the ancient island of Delos -- a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Delos was the birthplace of Apollo and his twin sister Artemis -- the children of Zeus and Leto. This sacred island is uninhabited now, but its first settlements date to the 3rd millennium BC. The ruins on Delos are numerous and important to Greek history -- the Sanctuary of Apollo complex, the area of the Sacred Lake (which dried up in 1926), the Terrace of Lions, the sanctuaries on Cynthus, the theater district, and the commercial harbor district. Your guided walking tour will reveal one of the most respected and revered sanctuaries of antiquity.

Please note: A great deal of walking is required on this tour. Shade is limited; please dress accordingly. Bring a hat and wear sunscreen. Wear sturdy walking shoes. The public ferry ride is 45 minutes each way, and at times the crossing can be rough; guests who suffer from motion sickness should consider this before booking and/or take appropriate medication. Use of an audio headset (included) will enhance your tour experience.
