Ios - 4D/3N
Ios, with its superb sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, white chapels and interesting archaeological sites is one of the most picturesque islands of the Cyclades. It has a history that goes back to prehistoric times and is home to 2 museums and several taverns and restaurants offering very reasonable prices but is still best known for its swinging night life, an irresistible attraction for the young. Only one hour away by ferry from Santorini or 8 hours from Piraeus the island waits for you to discover and enjoy its beauty. A youngsterâ€™s paradise.
Visiting the Islands
These island visits have been created as an extension to a stay in Athens or a tour of the mainland and we have tried to use the local ferries, if possible. If you are already in Athens a ferry, especially if you are going to Mykonos, is your best way to travel! It is just a 30 minutes flight to the island of Mykonos, but it may take 2 hours to go to the airport, you will need to be there 1 hour before the flight, then drive from the airport to town (another 30 minutes). With the ferry it will take 20 minutes to Piraeus and about 2 hours to get to Mykonos, a lot more relaxing and interesting! On each island we have selected a variety of accommodations ranging from modest to luxurious. If you are coming to Mykonos for the night-life, then you should find accommodations in town, where you can walk about and be in the center of everything.
