Best of Milos Small Group Island Tour
US$52.17
Overview

This affordable, small-group adventure is perfect for experiencing Milos’s highlights on an intensive full-day tour. Get an introduction to the island without the hassle of renting a car. Visit Papafragkas cave and Sarakiniko beach, explore the ruins of ancient Klima, and see the Plaka catacombs, where the Venus of Milo was discovered. Top off your day with a refreshing swim at Palaiochori or Provatas, where you’ll enjoy snacks and drinks.

What to Expect

A special full day tour to discover the incredible volcanic island of Milos. 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.

Located next to Papafragkas cave is 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 volcanic Sarakiniko. This beautiful, moon-like 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.

Next stop Plaka and its cobble streets and alleys. Plaka is a classic Cycladic village with white stone houses and bougainvillea flowers, locted at a hilltop. 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 (not included). 

Following, the 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. There is free time for swimming and sunbathing.

Please take note:
- We provide with a 500ml bottle of water, in case of a warm day we can provide one more, during stops you can purchase extra day from shops/cantins during the visits
- We also provide one sandwich (cheese, tomato, ham) per person
- Lunch during swim stop is not included in price. Alternative you can bring your own provisions.
- The cost does not include entransee fees to the Catacombs (4euros per adult, 2euros for 65+ and students)
- In order to access the Catacombs you need to walk down (and up on the return) 84 steps. No shade during the descent/ascent.
-The itinerary can change at the discretion of the guide to ensure the best possible experience of the visitors.

Great day out

One of the best tours I've experienced so far. If you want to visit the "must see" places and get to know the history behind them, Alexandros is the guy you are looking for.
