Sifnos Guide

The Greek island of Sifnos is one of the Cyclades islands, and lies between the island of Serifos and the island of Milos. It is located to the west of Delos and Paros and around 130 km from Port of Piraeus on the Greek mainland. The island's capital is Apollonia, sometimes called Hora, and was built over three hills in the centre of the island in the shape of an amphitheatre. The town is characterised by its whitewashed houses in the typical Cycladic architectural style. The island's Folklore Museum is based in Apollonia, in Hiroon Square - which means Square of Heroes. One of the most popular visitor attractions on the island is the medieval castle located around 3.5 km from Apollonia. It was built on top of the island's ancient capital and still has the original characteristics of a Venetian fortification. It was established by the Da Corogna Dynasty in around 1635.

The town of Kamares is home to the island's port and during the summer there are ferry services operating to Piraeus, to other Cycladic islands like Serifos, Folegandros, Kythnos, Ios, Santorini and also to Crete.

Kimolos Guide

Kimolos is a Greek island that lies in the Aegean Sea and is part of the Cyclades group of islands and is separated from the island of Milos by the Strait of Kimolos. According to legend, the island takes its name from the island's first resident. During ancient times, the island was called Echinousa, probably after the snake Echidna (viper) which was, and remains, common on the island. Since ancient times the island has been a battlefield between Ancient Athens, the ruler of the island, and Sparta, the ruler of nearby Milos.

Kimolos actually belongs to the Western Cyclades and is connected to nearby islands and the port of Piraeus, Athens, via a year-round ferry service with a catamaran ferry running only during the busy summer tourist season. During the tourist period, the island usually has daily connection to Piraeus and other islands. Also, transport via Milos is possible, because of the frequent connection of the two islands with local ferry services.
