activity info

Enjoy a private trip to the sacred Island of Delos, the 'Island of light'. Explore the impressive archaeological site with a professional expert guide and hear the full stories behind the temples, sanctuaries and artifacts.

According to mythology, Zeus, the king of the gods, fell in love with a beautiful Titaness named Leto, but when his wife discovered his infidelity, she forbade Mother Earth to give Leto refuge. Lonely and pregnant, Leto wandered the earth until the island appeared amid the waves so that she would have a place to give birth to twins: Artemis, goddess of the hunt and virginity, and Apollo, god of truth and light.

Pilgrims from all over Greece came to pay their respects, creating one of the wealthiest and most revered shrines of antiquity. After reaching the island by chartered boat, you'll discover among the ruins, one of the island's most spectacular relics, the Avenue of the Lions, where perfect replicas of the 7th century Naxian marble beasts crouch in silent vigilance at the Sacred Lake where Leto gave birth to her twins. Beyond, a path leads to Mt. Kynthos, where Zeus observed the event. It is 368 feet to the summit, and for the energetic, the view is worth every step, offering magnificent panoramas. There are many other interesting monuments which you'll be able to admire during your visit.
