Delos

Known as the birthplace of the Greek god Apollo, Delos has been declared a “Sacred Island” by the Greek government and it contains ruins of one of the most important and glorious civilizations the world has ever known.  The island itself is relatively small being only six kilometers long and 1,500 meters wide, but it is monumental in Greek history and mythology.  Delos is not only the geological center of the Cyclades, but was once the commercial, religious, and political center of ancient Greece.  Boats to Delos leave from the Hora dock in town near the Paraportiannis church between 9am and 2:30pm Tuesday through to Sunday.
