Best of Milos Small Group Island Tour
A special full day tour to discover the incredible volcanic island of Milos, one of the most beautiful places on earth. First stop the cave of Papafragkas, a cluster of deep-sea inlets and sea caves. We will wonder for a short while at this picturesque location, where you can look down into clear turquoise waters. Milos played a crucial part in the pre-history of the Cyclades and specifically Filakopi, which is located next to Papafragkas cave. Filakopi was a settlement dating back to the Neolithic Period (approximately 9000 to 4000 BC) and remained an active settlement until 1000 BC. From Papafragkas we can witness the remains of the walls of the city (only standing remains of the city at this point). The tour does NOT enter the archeological site. We will continue, towards Sarakiniko, an inlet of pure white stone sculpted by volcanic eruptions. This beautiful, out-of-this-world spot is one of the island’s many geological wonders and perhaps one of the most photographed places in the Cyclades. We’ll take a walk down the beach so you can experience this one-of-a-kind location and take photographs. You’ll feel as if you’ve landed on the moon. Next stop Plaka and its cobble streets and alleys. Plaka is a classic Cycladic village with white stone houses and bougainvillea flowers, at 250 meters above the Aegean. We’ll walk through the village to admire its traditional architecture and its stunning view of the sea, and we’ll taste some homemade sweets at the village’s local pastry shops. Just 300 meters from Trypiti, lay the early Christian catacombs which are the largest in Greece and the ruins of ancient city of Klima. Close to the catacombs is the marble amphitheater. There are still seven intact seat rows and there is a lovely view of the bay. On the way to the theater from the Catacombs, we shall also visit the site where Venus de Milo was discovered in 1820 (now residing in the Louvre in Paris). The tour will enter the catacombs (15mins visit). The port of the ancient city of Milos, is now the fish village of Klima, which is our next stop. The houses there are called “Syrma”. The colorful doors and the sea create a picture that summarizes the essence of a Greek island! After the interesting sightseeing is the time to indulge a cool swim and drinks in the crystal waters of Palaiochori or Provatas beach. Each beach offers changing facilities, beach bars, restaurants and watersports (in Palaiochori). There is free time for swimming and sunbathing. Both beaches are located at the south side of the island, so are mostly protected by the north Aegean Sea wind of the summer (meltemi). Note: The itinerary can change at the discretion of the guide to ensure the best possible experience of the visitors. The beach can change according to given weather conditions.
