Tinos Island Tour
A short 45-minute boat ride from Mykonos is the only thing keeping you away from the island of Tinos. The gorgeous next-door neighbour of Mykonos is the third biggest island of the Cyclades and attracts many tourists looking for an alternative experience.
When we dock at the port of Tinos, we board the luxurious bus that will take us around and head straight to the most famous Greek church of “Evangellistria”. The church is considered to be the home of many a wondrous deed.
After this spiritual awakening, we leave Tinos island and head over winding roads past typical Greek villages and picturesque landscapes to the monastery of “Kechrovouni”. The home of the nun Pelagia that found the holy icon of the island in Tinos island in the early 1800s. We will explore the medieval monastery, home of 40 nuns and tour around the various points of interest. Whitewashed buildings, churches and gardens full of flowers to name just a few.
The bus tour continues to the historic mountain of “Exobourgo” where the great Venetian castle would tower over the island and protect the whole of Greece during the Turkish invasion. After a couple of photos, we head to the other side of the castle, where the Catholic villages of the island are situated. Standing out is the traditional village of “Volax”, which is world know for its basket-making and a great opportunity for a coffee break.
Next up, we continue to the fertile downs of Komi where we pass through the main agricultural areas of the island and take the time to enjoy the lemon groves just before heading to the “Panormos”. A village famous for its killer views over the island and the Aegean sea. After a traditional lunch (not included in tour price) by the sea and a taste of seafood and possibly a swim, we head out.
We head out to “Pirgos”, the centre of the marble region of the island. We will see the local artists at work before walking around the marble-made village. The church of Agios Nikolaos and the graveyard, also made out of marble are some standout buildings.
Slowly heading back towards Tinos town through the panorama we make our last stop in the valley of the old Venetian pigeon houses; a beautiful site of the time. We drive back to Tinos town where we have some free, leisure time before meeting at the port and returning to Mykonos by boat.
