Full description

Meet first outside the Ancient Theater of Milos. Begin your exploration of Milos Island by visiting Papafragas, a cluster of deep-sea inlets and sea caves. Discover the ancient settlement of Phylakopi at the base of a ravine that was shaped by volcanic activity. Learn more about this site which played a crucial part in the pre-history of the Cyclades and remained an active settlement until 1000 BC.

Continue with a short drive to Sarakiniko, an inlet of pure white rock formations sculpted by volcanic eruptions. Take a walk down the inlet so you can experience this one-of-a-kind beach and take some fantastic photos.

Travel along the northern coast towards picturesque Plaka and its cobbled streets and alleys. Explore a classic Cycladic “Chora” with white stone houses and bougainvillea. Walk through the village to admire its traditional architecture and its stunning view of the sea from the veranda of Panagia Korfiatissa, a beautiful 19th-century church. Taste some homemade sweets at the village’s famous local pastry shop, at your own expense.

Stop on the outskirts of Trypiti and stroll towards the recently restored marble Roman Amphitheater. Admire the views of this site from above and see seven entire seat rows with a lovely view of the bay.

Superb experience! Discover the island of Milos in its entirety and accompanied by a guide passionate about the Cyclades! I recommend this excursion which allows you to see all the points of the island in 4 hours. If you're not staying on the island for long or don't have transportation, this tour is perfect.

We did this excursion with Yannis and were alone with him since there were cancellations. it was a perfect afternoon. We weren't expecting it but he speaks French and was very informative with us and we were able to visit a little less on the run than in a group and he took us to unplanned swimming spots. It's a good tour in 4 hours which allows you to see a lot of things.

Ask for the guide, Gladwin Kiritsi! Originally from Belfast, Gladwin has lived on Milos for many years with her Greek husband. She has vast knowledge of the island and comes with a wonderful perspective. She generously let me shape the tour to align with my interests. A very enjoyable afternoon and highly recommended!
