Milos tour description
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 collection of two sea caves. Papafragkas showcases some very interesting examples of volcanic activity. We’ll explore this picturesque location, where you can enjoy the crystal clear water. Milos played a crucial part in the pre-history of the Cyclades and specifically Phylacopi (Filakopi), which is located next to Papafragkas cave. Phylacopi was a settlement dating back to the Neolithic Period (approximately 9000 to 4000 BC) and remained an active settlement until 1000 BC. While excavating the site in the late 1890s, British archeologists discovered tools made from obsidian, a volcanic glass similar to granite. From Papafragkas we can witness the remains of the walls of the city (only standing remains of the city at this point) and the guide will have a chance to give information and the history behind Phylacopi. The tour does NOT enter the archeological site.
Next stop Sarakiniko, a unique location in Europe. This beautiful, lunar-like spot is one of the island’s many geological wonders and perhaps one of the most photographed places in the Cyclades. Some walking is required in order to arrive at the beach and properly explore the location, taking some very interesting pictures.
From there we will travel towards Plaka and its paved streets and narrow alleys. Plaka is a classic Cycladic village with white stone houses and bougainvillea flowers, standing 250 meters above sea level. We’ll walk through the village to admire its traditional architecture and its stunning view of the entrance of the port, while we have a chance to try local sweets in some of the pastry shops of the village.
Next stop, 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, one of the few ancient theaters in Greece with panoramic sea view. 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 greek word for cable wire), which is used to pull the boats out of the water and into the house, like a modern garage. 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.
