Delos and The Old Town Of Mykonos

€ 500.00

Your English speaking licensed guide will meet you at your ship and take you to the pier in Mykonos town. There you'll board the local kaiki (ferries) to Delos. Once you arrive your licensed guide will provide a fascinating walking tour of one of the most respected and revered sanctuaries of antiquity.

Delos is located virtually at the center of the Cyclades island group and it is this position that caused it to develop into one of the most important trading centers of the Mediterranean. Today a small uninhabited island, it was once the religious centre of the entire Aegean. According to mythology it was the birthplace of Apollo, the god of music, light and beauty. 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 inhabitation were discovered, dating back to the 3rd century B.C. After your tour on the island of Delos you return to the harbor in Mykonos where your tour ends and you can enjoy free time in the town of Mykonos. It is about a 20 minute walk through the town and along the harbor to return to the pier where large cruise ships dock. However most cruise lines offer free shuttles from the town back to the ship.
