There are about 250 islands in the Cyclades, among them some of the “main” and most beautiful islands, like these:

  • Santorini. It is impossible to visit the Cyclades without going to Santorini!

  • Delos, small island, neighbor of the noisy Mykonos
  • Paros. Of course. A must see.

  • Milos.

Which island to choose between Paros and Naxos?

Paros or Naxos? It is difficult to choose, but you should know that the two islands, although very close (25 to 45 minutes by ferry), offer two different atmospheres to travelers.

Of course, the two Greek islands are a place to relax, to discover white and blue villages, and to swim in dreamy beaches with transparent water. But it should be noted that Naxos will invite you more to discover the Greek culture through its archaeological sites and other Byzantine churches. A magnificent 1000m hike also awaits hikers wanting to tackle Mount Zeus.
