Delos (Dilos) Tours and Activities

77 Reviews
Delos (Dilos)
Discover archaeological ruins and ancient Greek history during a trip to Delos, an island in the Cyclades, near Mykonos. Known as the mythological birthplace of Apollo, Delos was an important religious and cultural center in Ancient Greece. Visit to see the ruins, including a theater, temples, monuments, private homes, and markets. 

The Basics
Learn about how the ancient Greeks lived during a visit to the archaeological ruins at Delos, located on the island’s west coast. See excavated treasures at the on-site museum, climb to the top of Mt. Kythnos for panoramic views of the island, and wander through the ruins. Highlights include the Sanctuary of Apollo and the Terrace of the Lions. Several tours of Delos are available from Mykonos, including yacht cruises, history tours, and sunset sailing trips. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The archaeological ruins at Delos are popular with history buffs and families seeking educational experiences. 
  • The island of Delos is uninhabited, and facilities are limited; bring your own picnic, sunscreen, and sturdy walking shoes.
  • The ruins at Delos are not accessible for wheelchairs and strollers.
  • There are no overnight facilities at Delos. 

How to Get There
The island of Delos is about a 30-minute sail southwest of Mykonos. You can reach the island by catching a boat from the town of Chora, on Mykonos; hiring a private boat; or taking an organized tour with a guide. 

When to Get There
The most popular time of year to visit Delos is May–October, and the site is most crowded during the summer months (though this is also when the island can be quite warm). Additional boats are available during peak season. Visit during the spring or fall to avoid crowds. 

Chora Sightseeing
The picturesque town of Chora—also known as Mykonos Town—is the island of Mykonos’ main hub. Visitors linger here to admire whitewashed houses and a picturesque bay filled with turquoise waters and to enjoy a variety of shops, restaurants, and galleries. Before hopping on the boat to Delos, spend some time exploring Chora’s many sights, which include the fishing village of Little Venice and the Church of Panagia Paraportiani.
