4.5 h. tour (Private tour)
(private guided tour of Delos + free time)
This is a half-day trip to the sacred island of Apollo and Artemis, a famous political and religious center in Antiquity, an island which still remains uninhabited and is absolutely fascinating to explore walking up and down the ancient marble paths that still remain.
Your local expert will be waiting for you outside your cruise ship. Depending on where your ship docks, you will either have a transfer or walk to Diliana port (old port), from where the boats to Delos depart. After a 30 minute boat trip you will reach the island of Delos.
The whole territory of the deserted Delos is one of the most important archaeological sites of the eastern Mediterranean protected by UNESCO as one of the UNESCO heritage sites of the world. You may visit, amongst others, the remains of the temples of Apollo, the sanctuary of Artemis, the old city and the theatre and then, walk down the celebrated Lion Street.
At the end of your guided tour, you will have the opportunity to visit the museum of Delos, where you can admire Archaic, Classical, Hellenistic and Roman sculptures, a collection of vessels from all periods as well as small items of everyday use.
Once your free time is over and it is time to get back to Mykonos, you will walk back to the Delos port and board the boat for your return trip back to the island of Mykonos. Once there, if you have time at your disposal, you can walk around the alleys of Mykonos Chora and return back to your cruise ship either on foot or taking a taxi.
