Delos may be one of the smaller Greek islands, but it’s one of the richest when it comes to mythology. Found near the centre of the Cyclades archipelago, it was a holy sanctuary, the suggested birthplace of Apollo and Artemis and then, an ancient city. While there’s no accommodation on the island now, there’s evidence of its previous inhabitants everywhere – recovered statues, mosaics and even the footings of an ancient theatre.
In the peak season, the ferry runs from Mykonos Old Port daily.
Delos has so many stories to reveal, so make the most of your experience and book a half day guided tour.
