Tinos is the third largest of the Cyclades islands
after Naxos and Andros. It is also known as the "Holy Island"
with a famous shrine to the Holy Virgin. For Orthodox Christians
it is a special place of pilgrimage.
Those interested in the glories of Ancient Greece will want to explore
the temple of Poseidon in Kionia and the nearby island of Delos,
birthplace of the gods Apollo and Artemis.
From the golden terraces of the hillsides to the unspoiled
beaches Tinos is extraordinarily beautiful. The captivating landscape
is famous for its picturesque villages and old ornamental pigeon
houses. There are so many great wonderful places for hiking, biking
or simply lazing on the beach. Little tavernas all over the island
will please you with local specialties.
Whatever you like to do we are always at hand with
help and suggestions.
Tinos is easy to get to from Athens. There are several
ferries a day from Piraeus or from Rafina, not far from Athens airport.
Or you can fly to Mykonos and take the ferry from there. It only
takes half an hour.
Please phone us for more information.
