>Day 5 | Mykonos - Delos (Optional Tour)

Morning transfer to the port to board the ferry to Delos. In the ancient times, the myth of god Apollo, god of light, and goddess Artemis having been born there rendered the island sacred: no mortal would ever be allowed to be born on its land. But, a cradle of gods as the island has been, no mortals would ever be allowed to die on it either. So, apart from it being a conspicuous religious and economic center, the island had also been exclusive in that: even during the years of the peak of the Delian Alliance, women on the brink of childbirth and people close to death would be carried to the neighboring island of Rineia. The whole of the known world of that age was aware of the sacredness of the island and of its uniqueness. Nowadays, Delos reserves its uniqueness to the known world: nowhere else in the Globe is there a natural insular archaeological site of this size and importance. No other island on Earth hosts so many monumental antiquities from the Archaic, the Classical, and the Hellenistic periods, i.e. the centuries of the great Greek art, on a territory used exclusively as an archaeological site. Delos is not a museum; Delos is not there to tell a story. Delos is history itself. Return to Mykonos. Overnight

We will continue with Red Beach, well known for the unique color of the sand and the hill behind it. We will continue with Perivolos black sand beach one of the longest beaches in the Cyclades & the best beach in Santorini, considered as the trendiest beach of the island.
