Part of the Cyclades group of islands, the Greek island of Amorgos is the eastern most Cycladic island and has many ancient ruins for visitors to see. The island's ancient walls that surround the city of Arkesini are a popular feature on the island. The island also has a number of ancient towers and other remains located throughout the island.
The Panagia Hozoviotissa, a monastery located on a cliff to the north east of Chora was built in the second millennium to protect a religious icon from intruders. The icon remains on public display.
The island is connected with the port of Piraeus on the mainland and has ferry connections with the islands of Crete, Naxos, Syros, Paros, Koufonissi, Schinoussa, Donoussa and Astypalea. The two ports on Amorgos where the ferries come in are Katapola and Aegiali (changes on even and odd days). The journey from port of Piraeus to one of these ports will last around seven hours and thirty minutes.
The Greek island of Donoussa is the most northerly of the Small Eastern Cyclades group of islands and lies to the east of the island of Naxos and north of Amorgos. The island is quite small with a land area of around 13 sq. km and has a number of coves and hidden sandy beaches just waiting for visitors to explore. The island's residents, which amount to about 100, live mainly in the villages of Donoussa, Stavros, which is the largest and home to the island's port, Mersini, Haravgi and Kalotaritissa. A popular attraction on the island are the caves of "Spilia Tichou" with its spectacular stalactite formations, in the north west of the island, and "Fokospilia" on the island's east coast. According to mythology, Dionysus offered Ariadni a hiding place in Donoússa so that Thesseus could not find her. A settlement dating to the Geometric Period as well as remains of Bronze Age dwellings reveal the historical importance of the island.
Donoussa is connected by ferry to the port of Piraeus and to Naxos and Amorgos.
