The sapphire waters of the Aegean Sea around Mykonos and Delos islands are enchanting and magical. And when you are recharging your spirit on the Mykonos beaches, there is nothing better than a visit to Delos for feeling the islands and bringing ancient culture to life.
When you visit Delos, you will discover more than a dozen sites including temples, houses, and the amphitheater. In the museum, you can see much of the artwork recovered from the homes.
A guided tour is a good idea if you would like to see the essential sites and hear about the culture before exploring. Choose a trip that allows plenty of discovery time before the boat departs.
Delos has limited natural water, and it is incredible that thirty thousand people once lived thrived there with only the water captured by their rain cisterns and aqueducts. Some of the houses even have a central tile floor that holds a few inches of water to cool the house.
Take some water bottles with you because the sunshine and arid climate, while making you feel happy, will also make you thirsty.
