The Cyclades in a different way

From the port of Piraeus in Athens or from the airports of Santorini and Mykonos, you can easily reach less frequented islands that are well worth visiting.

For example, from Mykonos, take the boat to the island of Tinos for a twenty-minute crossing. This island is known for the Panagia Evangelistria church, a pilgrimage site, and its picturesque villages. On its west coast, you will find idyllic beaches.

From Santorini, head to the island of Sifnos, which is full of natural, cultural, and gastronomic beauties. Thanks to the many hiking trails, you will discover some of the two hundred thirty-seven churches and monasteries on the island. As the birthplace of the famous Chef Nikolaos Tselementes, his culinary influence will delight travelers seeking gourmet experiences!
