    Not far from Mykonos lies the island of Delos, the mythical birthplace of the Goddess Artemis and God Apollo - a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Like Delphi, Delos was a major sanctuary dedicated to Apollo, the Olympian god of prophecy, music, healing and more. Apollo’s sanctuary attracted pilgrims from all over Greece, creating one of the wealthiest and most revered shrines of antiquity.


    Here you’ll find traces of Aegean civilizations, from the 3rd millennium B.C. to the palaeo-Christian era. The archaeological site is exceptionally extensive and rich, and conveys the image of a great cosmopolitan Mediterranean port. The island's landscape consists solely of ruins systematically excavated since 1872 and a museum.


    After reaching the island by ferry 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.

    Delos In 3D

    Mykonos, Greece

    Duration 4 hrs

    Cruise to the sacred island of Delos and view a wealth of ruins using an electronic tablet with augmented-reality software that shows the structures as they appeared in ancient times.


    After departing from the pier, you will soon arrive at a boat launch and begin a picturesque cruise to the nearby island of Delos. According to Greek mythology, Apollo and his twin sister Artemis were born on Delos, which was first settled in the third millennium B.C. Archaeological discoveries excavated here have been deemed so indicative of an ancient cosmopolitan port that the entire island is now a UNESCO World Heritage site.


    All of the structures on Delos are excavated ruins, except for the museum and a few buildings for personnel. The landscape remains largely unaltered since ancient times because a town was never built over the original port, a rarity few other archaeological sites share.


    As you meander through the rather barren island, you will behold ruins that include temples, statues, mosaic floors and roads such as the Sacred Way, which leads to the Sanctuary of Apollo. Another highlight is the Terrace of Lions, named for the Naxian marble lions that guard it. The originals are in the island’s museum to protect them from the elements.


    To enhance your understanding and enjoyment of the ruins, you will be provided with an electronic tablet with 3D augmented-reality software. Just point the tablet’s camera at a ruin, and you can view the structure as it originally stood centuries ago.

It is not available to wheelchair guests and those guests with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of ability and stamina.
