A huge open air museum, a breath away from Mykonos.
The sacred island of the ancient times is located 6 n.m. southwest of Mykonos. The golden city with the columns, the mosaics, the statues, the palaestrae, the ancient theatre and the bygone wealthy districts came to light again in 1873, after the excavations of the French Archaeological School of Athens.

Today, in the archaeological site of Delos one will see Arcades, Markets, worship centers and temples as that of Apollo, of Artemis, of Leto, of the Athenians etc. You will also see the avenue of Lions and the Theatre district with the ancient theatre from the 3rd century BC.
