Day 5: Santorini - Ios

10 days route to the Cycladic Islands

Ios

Of all of the islands in the Cyclades, Ios is the most popular among young people. The dawn of its glory started in the 1970s, when the island became a favourite haunt for hippies. Today, you can find clubs here to suit any taste – especially in Hore, Ios’ main city. Party-lovers have also invaded the bay of Milopotas. If raving until dawn isn’t part of your plans, the beaches of Agia Theodoti, Calamas, Colizani, and Manganari are at your service.

Paradoxically, the best way of exploring Ios in another light is to walk around Hore during the day. Old churches, the ruins of a Venetian fortress, classical white houses with a bounty of colors bursting in the garden, and a labyrinth of streets show you a completely different Ios, more tranquil and quiet. In Colizani, you can stop by the museum of modern art. In Agia, see Theodoti – a Hellenistic tower and the ruins of an ancient aqueduct. And in Plakotos , you’ll find Homer’s grave.
