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.

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!

What a fantastic afternoon. The tour guide took me to many beautiful places (e.g. Sarakiniko, Pollonia, the mine, the ancient amphitheatre, the catacombs and much more). He knew the island very well and I learned a lot about Milos. I was picked up on time at the meeting point and the ride from one place to the next was very comfortable. I can highly recommend this tour!
